$82,332 has been raised by our teams!

Join us for The Lemon Run…Philadelphia’s most inspiring, cancer-fighting 5K!

This November, be part of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation’s biggest one-day event to help fund better treatments and cures for kids with cancer!

The event starts at Memorial Hall and loops through beautiful Fairmount Park. More than 3,000 runners and walkers wear yellow or gold to promote childhood cancer awareness and complete the 3.1 mile course. You will even have the inspirational opportunity to finish alongside participating childhood cancer hero families. 

There may be only one pathway for The Lemon Run, but there are many paths to supporting the event:

  • Fundraise as a team or an individual runner/walker. Create a fundraising page on the ALSF website when you register for the event and share it with your friends and family. Lemon Run participants are encouraged, but not required, to raise money and help the fight against childhood cancer. 
  • Sponsor The Lemon Run as a business or an organization. Levels begin at just $250.
  • Sign up the kids for a fun 100 meter Kids' Dash  preceding the 5K. 
  • Live far from Philadelphia? Run or walk in your own hometown as an out of town participant and we’ll even send you a 2017 Lemon Run t-shirt!
  • Gather under a team tent. ALSF will supply tents to our largest teams and fundraisers.

Meet Two of Our Out of Town Participants

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.”
 L Cpl. Tim Sullivan
