4th Annual Alex’s Lemonade Stand…Why We Continue To Do This

June 5, 2017 in Inspirational Stuff


For the 4th year in a row, we are holding our Alex’s Lemonade Stand fundraiser to raise money for a cause that means SO much to us: childhood cancer. Middle Dude and I are getting ready to make our homemade lemonade and we hope you’ll be eager to drink a cup either in person or donate to our stand online… Did you know less than 4% of all funding at the National Cancer institute goes toward research for childhood cancers? That is unacceptable!

And that is why we continue to hold our lemonade stand to raise these much needed funds for pediatric cancer research, which will help find better treatments and cures. Please know this isn’t just about our family, but it’s about the many other children who are affected by this villain. Ever since Little Dude was diagnosed, every year we hear about another child THAT WE KNOW PERSONALLY who is diagnosed with childhood cancer. This doesn’t feel rare to us anymore; this is and always will be personal.

Middle Dude has continued to support his brother and other children affected by cancer by staying involved with this cause.

Here are the details for our stand:

When: Saturday, June 10th, 2017 from 11am – 4pm

Where: Chatsworth Avenue School carnival – on the playground

So, if you’re a “local,” please stop by our stand at Chatsworth this Saturday. Middle Dude and I will be wearing our PaulieStrong hats in memory of Paulie, a local boy from a neighboring community who was a brave, sweet warrior. If you can’t make it, you can always donate online – ANY amount is always appreciated. To donate on our team page, click HERE.
