How To Have A Lemonade Stand

Four-year-old cancer patient Alex Scott was a small girl with a big plan, to have a lemonade stand to raise money for childhood cancer research! Before passing away at the age of 8, Alex raised $1 million with the help of kids across the country. Since then, kids all over have held lemonade stands to raise money for childhood cancer research.

Once you decide to hold a stand, have your parent or guardian register it with us, so we'll know you are having it! It is free to register, and no donation is too small. 

What you’re doing:

Holding a lemonade stand to raise much needed funds for childhood cancer research.

What you will need:

5. Have your parent or guardian write a check or money order for the amount that you raised (please do not send cash through the mail). Send the money to us:
