Alex’s Lemonade Stand
Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged in the year 2000 in the form of the front yard lemonade stand of 4-year-old Alexandra “Alex” Scott. Alex, who was fighting cancer, and wanted to raise money to find cures for all children with cancer. Her spirit and determination inspired others to support and join her efforts. Alex passed away at the age of 8, by that time she had helped raise over $1 million. Today, ALSF is one of the leading funders of pediatric cancer research in the U.S. and Canada, raising more than $250 million so far, funding over 1,000 research projects, and providing programs to families affected by childhood cancer.
