Want to take your athletic accomplishments to the next level? Become a Champion for Kids with Cancer!

You work hard and want to perform at your best as an athlete. By being a Champion for Kids with Cancer, you can demonstrate your dedication to being the best person you can be every day. Whether you are a basketball player scoring points, a goalie making saves, a baseball player stealing home, or a cyclist riding miles, when you sign up to be a Champion, you are committed to making a difference! 

Here is how it works--you sign up below (it's free) and that will create your Champion page. You can use your Champion page to upload photos of you in action, set a goal for whatever stat you want to track, and share your stats all season long. Through your page,friends and family can pledge or donate to show their support. As your athletic accomplishments add up, so do the donations.  For example, $2 per point x 50 points in the season = $100 donation to your page to support children with cancer.    

Teams are also welcome to register together and track their achievements as a group throughout the season.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Champion for Kids with Cancer?

Champions are athletes of all ages that dedicate their seasons to children with cancer. Through a personalized web page, friends and family can make a one-time donation or pledge a dollar amount for athletic accomplishments. (For example, $2 per point X 50 points = $100 to research). Play the sport you love, raise awareness for children’s cancer and bring potentially lifesaving treatment options to thousands of kids waiting for a cure.

Who can be a Champion? *

Champion for Kids with Cancer is for everyone! Play the sport you love, raise funds and awareness and bring hope to thousands of kids and their families by turning your stats into research dollars. Through a personalized fundraising webpage, friends and family can make a one-time donation or pledge a dollar amount per athletic accomplishment. (For example, $2 per point X 50 points = $100 donation to research). Teams can register together too and track their group accomplishments!

*Please note that we suggest all high school athletes interested in participating in the Champions program notify their coach and athletic director of their participation. College athletes should talk with their compliance office about participation. For more specific information on NCAA compliance and the Champions program email [email protected].

Why support the Champions program?

Children with cancer need you on their team. Childhood cancers are the number one disease killer of children and pediatric cancer research is vastly and consistently underfunded. Your support means more research projects in the hopes of eliminating this disease from children’s lives.

Where does the money go?

All funds raised go directly to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research, a registered 501(c)3 charity. Careful distribution of our grants allows doctors to bring the latest and most promising life saving treatments to seriously ill children. These grants provide hope for childhood cancer patients. Visit our Where the Money Goes section to learn more about how your donation helps.

How do I get started?

Absolutely! Our coaches work with students across the country to plan events and approve service hours.

Where do I send the money from my fundraiser?
