How Will We Cure Childhood Cancer? One Cup At a Time!
When: Friday, June 3 - Sunday, June 11, 2017
Alex's Lemonade Days is our annual campaign in which thousands of supporters from coast to coast host lemonade stands to fight childhood cancer. Held each year during June, Alex's Lemonade Days has raised more than $15 million to help fund cures for pediatric cancer!
Be part of the national effort to raise awareness and funds for childhood cancer research in your community by hosting a lemonade stand or event during Alex's Lemonade Days.
Every effort counts and no donations are too small in the fight against childhood cancer. Here is how it works:
Since Alex's first front yard lemonade stand, there have been over 55,000 ALSF lemonade stands held across the country and world. Alex's Lemonade Stands make a meaningful difference at any time of the year, but there's a special excitement to Alex's Lemonade Days, when so many supporters join forces and hold stands simultaneously to be a part of our largest annual fundraiser. In the spirit of Alex's ambitious goal to raise $1 million, which she reached before she passed away in 2004, Lemonade Days weekend consistently raises $1 million annually. To date, we have had over 25,000 stands during Lemonade Days!
