Can you believe that it’s already April and the summer months will be here before we know it? As we head into the busiest time of the year, we wanted to share ways that everyone can get involved with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation and the battle against childhood cancer. Whether you’re a foodie, an athlete, a kid at heart, a car enthusiast or a fun-loving group, there are ways for YOU to make a difference in the lives of children with cancer.

For the kids, or the kids at heart- host a lemonade stand or join Lemonade Days

This is Alex’s original fundraising idea. It’s easy, fun and provides a way for friends, family and communities to come together to make a difference. Host an Alex’s Lemonade Stand anytime of year, or join the national fundraising drive known as Lemonade Days on June 10, 11 & 12, 2011. Volunteers across the country will host lemonade stands throughout these three days in an effort to raise $1 million for childhood cancer research.

For the athlete – Join Team Lemon, or support The Lemon Run!

Why not get fit while you make a difference? ALSF’s Team Lemon invites athletes of all calibers to raise funds for the foundation while taking part in races of all types. Whether it’s a local 5K or the New York City Marathon, athletes are encouraged to fundraise along the way and in return will be given access to a race coach, fundraising coach, training programs, an online fundraising page and cool Team Lemon apparel for training and race day! If you’re looking for another way to support ALSF while utilizing your athletic skills, join us for the 3rd Annual Lemon Run in Philadelphia on November 13, 2011.
