As part of a nationwide effort to “Fight Childhood Cancer, One Cup at a Time,” The Le Family will host their 3rd annual Hawk’s Lemonade Stand on June 11, 2022, from 11am-1pm. This event is a fundraiser for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) and is part of the charity’s national Lemonade Days campaign.

The Le Family was inspired by the story of Alexandra Scott, founder of Alex’s Lemonade Stand, and when their son Hawk wanted to start a lemonade stand, they decided to raise the money for children and families fighting pediatric cancer, just like Alex.

Over the years their stand has grown to include and mean more than just lemonade. With all the lemonade, pies, and cookies, the stand has grown to also represent coming together as a community, all in the spirit of ALSF.

To date, the family has raised over $3,400 for the foundation. This money has been used to fund innovative research and support families impacted by childhood cancer.

For those who cannot make it to the event, donations will be accepted on the family’s fundraising page: Hawk’s Lemonade Stand 2022 | Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer (alexslemonade.org)

About Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation
Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of 4-year-old Alexandra “Alex” Scott, who was fighting cancer and wanted to raise money to find cures for all children with cancer. Her spirit and determination inspired others to support her cause, and when she passed away at the age of 8, she had raised $1 million. Since then, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement. Today, ALSF is one of the leading funders of pediatric cancer research in the U.S. and Canada raising more than $250 million so far, funding over 1,000 research projects and providing programs to families affected by childhood cancer.
