A legacy made from lemonade

Published on: 

Ten years ago lemonade began making a difference in the life of childhood cancer patients across the U.S. At 4 years old, a little girl understood that in order to find a cure for childhood cancers, research was needed. And to do research, you needed money.So Alex Scott made lemonade, and began "fighting childhood cancer, one cup at a time." Between that first stand in 2000, and the ones she held each year until 2004, when she died, Alex raised over $1 million. And her parents, Jay and Liz Scott, formed the Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, allowing her legacy to be continued.This Saturday, June 12, marks the 10-year anniversary of Alex's original lemonade stand. Her parents, Jay and Liz Scott, are hosting a day of remembrance for their daughter and the hope she inspired. The event takes place at Alex's elementary school, Penn Wynne, in Wynnewood, Pennsylvania.For more information about the event, click here.
