Thank you for your support of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation’s inaugural Lemon Climb presented by Volvo! The Climb raised an amazing $40,000 for children with cancer. This will help to fund critically-needed research grants to scientists looking to find better treatments and cures. With nearly 150 participants (some dressed as running lemons and superheroes), wonderful volunteers and a fun post-climb celebration, we are already looking forward to our next event in Boston. Thank you for your commitment to making a difference and climbing for a cure!
A special thank you to Teams Mighty Max, Spencer's Steppers, Summer Strong, Car Ramrod, and C the Cure for each raising over $1,500 for childhood cancer research. If your team hasn’t reached your fundraising goal yet, it’s not too late! Every dollar counts towards making a difference in the lives of children with cancer and their families. Congratulations to Ruben Dries of Boston, MA and Heather Hanson of Marstons Mills, MA for being the first male and female to finish the climb. Results from the event can be found here. You can also find photos from the Lemon Climb below and on our Facebook page.
We hope to see you next year!
