Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra "Alex" Scott (1996-2004). In 2000, 4-year-old Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Since Alex held that first stand, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of supporters across the country carrying on her legacy of hope. To date, Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 charity, has raised more than $95 million toward fulfilling Alex's dream of finding a cure, funding over 475 pediatric cancer research projects nationally.
To raise money and awareness of childhood cancer causes, primarily research into new treatments and cures.
To encourage and empower others, especially children, to get involved and make a difference for children with cancer.
