This Fall, be part of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation’s biggest one-day event—The Lemon Run!

The event kicks off with a 100-meter Kids’ Dash for all children ages 8 and under. Following a brief inspirational program, The Lemon Run starts at Memorial Hall and loops through beautiful Fairmount Park. More than 3,000 runners and walkers wear yellow or gold for childhood cancer awareness and complete the 3.1 mile course. A number of childhood cancer hero families participate that day too, adding meaning and inspiration for everyone who crosses the finish line.

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


“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.”
