As part of a nationwide effort to “Fight Childhood Cancer, One Cup at a Time,” The Flicek Family will host their annual Braden’s Lemonade Stand, June 11, 2022, from 9am-12pm. This event is a fundraiser for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) and is part of the charity’s national Lemonade Days campaign.

This year, the Flicek family will raise funds and awareness for pediatric cancer so that one day no family will have to experience what they, and so many more, have.

Braden Flicek was a fun-loving, sporty, Lego master at just six years old when he was diagnosed with cancer. Despite numerous treatments, and never losing his contagious personality, Braden passed away at the age of nine.

To date, the Flicek family has raised over $15,000 for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. This money has been used to fund innovative research and support families impacted by childhood cancer, just like the Flicek’s.

This year, the family invites any and all to take part in their stand as they embody the spirit of ALSF.

For those who cannot make it to the event, donations will be accepted on the family’s fundraising page: Braden’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.
