Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Champion for Kids with Cancer?

Champions are athletes of all ages that dedicate their seasons to children with cancer. Through a personalized webpage, friends and family can make a one-time donation or pledge a dollar amount for athletic accomplishments. (For example, $2 per point X 50 points = $100 to research). Play the sport you love, raise awareness for children’s cancer and bring potentially lifesaving treatment options to thousands of kids waiting for a cure.

Who can be a Champion? *

Champion for Kids with Cancer is for everyone! Play the sport you love, raise funds and awareness and bring hope to thousands of kids and their families by turning your stats into research dollars.  Teams can register together too and track their group accomplishments!

*Please note that we suggest all high school athletes interested in participating in the Champions program notify their coach and athletic director. College athletes should talk with their compliance office about participation. For more specific information on NCAA compliance and the Champions program email [email protected].

Why support the Champions program?

Children with cancer need you on their team. Childhood cancer is the number one disease killer of children and pediatric cancer research is vastly and consistently underfunded. Your support means more research projects in the hopes of eliminating this disease from children’s lives.

Where does the money go?

All funds raised go directly to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research, a registered 501(c)3 charity. Careful distribution of our grants allows doctors to bring the latest and most promising lifesaving treatments to seriously ill children. These grants provide hope for childhood cancer patients and their families. Visit our Where the Money Goes section to learn more about how your donation helps.
