Alex’s Lemonade Stand
Curing childhood cancer, one cup at a time
Every year, an estimated 250,000 new cases of cancer aff ect children under the age of 20. That's almost 700 new kids affected every single day. And yet, childhood cancer is vastly and consistently underfunded. Less than 5% of the federal government's total funding for cancer research is dedicated to childhood cancers.
Alex’s Lemonade Stand will be at locations throughout the conference, so buy a glass of lemonade and support this local foundation! All donations will go directly to research seeking lifesaving treatment, raising awareness of childhood cancer causes, and empowering others to make a difference for children with cancer.
Marketplace Community Service Project // Alex’s Lemonade Stand SuperSibs Packs
Tuesday, April 25
10:00 am – 2:00 pm
SuperSibs is dedicated to comforting, encouraging, and empowering siblings during their family’s battle against childhood cancer, so these children and teens can face the future with courage and hope. SuperSibs sends six sibling comfort and care mailings as well as parent toolkits and newsletters to enrolled families every year, containing age-appropriate support resources and fun activities. We will be completing various projects for the SuperSibs program, including assembling family support packs, and coordinating the various mailings and toolkits.
