Extra Miler

Summer Bucket Listers and Sisters

Fourteen-year-old Kayla and 11-year-old Jordan Martelli, have been going the extra mile for children with cancer since starting their annual lemonade stand in 2012. The sisters have raised more than $15,000! Kayla had the idea by putting a lemonade stand on her summer bucket list, but wanted the money to go to charity. Kayla and Jordan’s parents, Don and Susan, researched some charities and that’s when they discovered ALSF. From then on, they have been hosting lemonade stands at their house, with their city mayor and politicians in attendance. The Lemonettes intend on keeping up their extra mile activities and have a goal of hosting a “city-wide” lemonade stand by having everyone in their hometown host their own stand on the same day.
