Palos Verdes Joins In Alex’s Lemonade Stand Run
The 1k Kids’ Fun Run has it’s start time at 9:30 a.m., and takes place around the park area. The group will be running around the Point Fermin Lighthouse, and is for ages 8 through 14.
Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) shares the vision of its founder and creator, Alexandra Scott. Alex was diagnosed with childhood cancer just before her first birthday, and when she was four, she told her parents she wanted to set up a front-yard lemonade stand. Her plan was to give the money to doctors to help them find a cure. The first “Alex’s Lemonade Stand,” with the help of her older brother Patrick, raised an astonishing $2,000 in one day. After this, while fighting her own cancer, Alex continued to set up lemonade stands every year. As news spread of this remarkable girl dedicated to helping other sick children, people everywhere were inspired to start their own lemonade stands—donating the proceeds to her cause.
