$150,184 has been raised by our teams!

Thank you to all who joined us for the 9th Annual Lemon Run presented by Volvo!

The chilly temperatures that morning did not keep people away as nearly 3,000 participants and over 150 volunteers packed Fairmount Park on Sunday, November 12, to run and walk together. With your help, we raised more than $300,000 to fund research for better treatments and cures for pediatric cancer.  Everyone who passed through Hero Alley that day crossed the finish line with a sense of accomplishment for having helped advance the fight against childhood cancer. 

From Maddie Davis’s heartfelt speech about honoring her fallen friend, Hailey, to the hundreds of people huddled under team tents supporting childhood cancer heroes, there was a true sense of camaraderie among all in attendance. Your superb level of support is a reflection of that.

There were plenty of inspiring stories from that day, including Zoe, a childhood cancer hero who participated in last year's race just days after surgery for stage IV neuroblastoma. This year, she finished nearly 30 minutes faster and her tremendous team, I Am with Zoe, raised over $2,500 dollars! They even sported custom shirts to celebrate her amazing achievements. 

Thank you to all the heroes, teams and participants who made this event spectacular all the way to the finish line. We hope to see you next year!

Lemon Run

“Dan, Dylan and I were virtual Lemon Runners. Attached is a picture after we finished the 5K in Oviedo, Florida. We had a great time supporting Team Julia and Alex's Lemonade Stand even though we could not run with everyone in Philadelphia. Thank you for everything you do to help children with cancer.” 
– Courtney Flugstad

Tim

“I attended the first Lemon Run in the fall of 2009 and had a great time. I thought running virtually while serving abroad would be a cool way to still participate, fight childhood cancer and get other troops involved in something fun here in Afghanistan.”
