$143,814 has been raised by our teams!

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

Nearly 3,000 participants and over 150 volunteers packed Fairmount Park on Sunday, November 12, to run and walk together to raise money to fund research for better treatments and cures for pediatric cancer. With your help, we raised almost $300,000 (and counting!). 

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.

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


“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.”
