Volvo For Life Fundraisers To Benefit Pediatric Cancer

Hundreds of retailers will hold concurrent fundraisers Oct. 8th through 16th for Alex's Lemonade Stand and local Children's Hospitals to benefit Pediatric Cancer.

Alexs Lemonade

Alexandra "Alex" Scott was the 8 year old founder of Alex's Lemonade Stand For Pediatric Cancer Research. Two days before her first birthday she was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, an aggressive childhood cancer. At the age of four, Alex decided to do something to make that cure more likely. She opened her first lemonade stand in July of 2000 with the idea of donating the proceeds to "her hospital." Each year since, Alex held an annual lemonade stand in her front yard. As word has spread, donations have poured in from around the world, and she has raised almost $3,000,000 for childhood cancer.
