Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation
Join Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for a Virtual End Childhood Cancer Walk/Run in support of the COVID-19 emergency fund. They invite all ALSF supporters to come together virtually for this uplifting 5K (3.1 mile) Walk/Run that you can participate in from any location. Each participant will receive a bib that can be printed from home to sport during your walk/run. There is a registration option that includes a limited-edition t-shirt that will be sent directly to you following the race.
Now, more than ever, kids and families going through cancer treatment need our help. Children in treatment are immunocompromised, making them one of the groups most susceptible to COVID-19. Their treatment cannot stop and families are now facing added economic strain and uncertainty as this pandemic continues to unfold. ALSF’s COVID-19 emergency fund directly supports families’ immediate needs by providing grocery assistance, extending safe, isolated lodging near treatment centers, and facilitating travel for care where possible. Your support will directly help these families in need.
They encourage fundraising as teams or individuals leading up to race day! Creating a virtual team with friends and family is a great way to stay connected while social distancing. You can participate in the race by walking or running outside within a safe distance from others, or by using a treadmill indoors. Consider this as a warm-up for The Million Mile in September, or as a way to train for many of our Team Lemon races that occur year-round!
On race day, inspire others by sharing your photos or videos on social media and tag @AlexsLemonade. Find positivity during these difficult times by asking family members, friends and colleagues to help end childhood cancer, one step at a time.
