In their continuing efforts to raise funds and awareness for the fight against childhood cancer, Plymouth Jellystone Park (PJP) lot owners will host their 4th annual lemonade stand on Saturday, August 12 from 11 am to 7 pm at Jellystone Park™ in Plymouth, IN. The lemonade stand will benefit childhood cancer research through Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF).

Since 2014, the lot owners of PJP have raised over $17,000 through their annual lemonade stands and fundraisers. At their first stand, they met local Childhood Cancer Hero Ryan Matthew Beining. He passed away before the second annual stand, so PJP lot owners decided to dedicate their stands in memory of him each year.

In addition to their lemonade stands, they will have fun activities like raffles, bean bag and horseshoe tournaments and a dunk tank. They hope to raise $4,000, which funds almost two weeks of childhood cancer research. For more information or to donate, visit Plymouth Jellystone Park’s ALSF fundraising page.

About Childhood Cancer

Childhood cancer is a general term used to describe cancer in children occurring regularly, randomly and sparing no ethnic group, socioeconomic class, or geographic region. Childhood cancer extends to over a dozen types of cancers and a countless amount of subtypes. Just a few of these cancer types include: Ewing’s sarcoma, glioma, leukemia, lymphoma, medulloblastoma, neuroblastoma, osteosarcoma, retinoblastoma, rhabdomyosarcoma and Wilms’ tumor. In the United States, childhood cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children under the age of 15. Every day, approximately 250 kids around the world die from cancer, accounting for 91,250 losing their lives to the disease every year.

About Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation

Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004). In 2000, 4-year-old Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Since Alex held that first stand, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of supporters across the country carrying on her legacy of hope. To date, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 charity, has raised more than $140 million toward fulfilling Alex’s dream of finding a cure, funding over 690 pediatric cancer research projects nationally.
