. . .Good, clean fun can make an impact.
Pretty Muddy has identified Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) as our Pretty Preferred Partner for 2013!
With the Pretty Muddy charitable program, we have the opportunity to make an impact on a very special organization. A portion of all registrations will go directly to Alex’s Lemonade Stand to help them achieve the vision of their founder and creator, Alex Scott – a cure for all children with cancer.
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 set up her first lemonade stand in 2000-truly exemplifying the saying “When life hands you lemons, make lemonade” – they have raised more than $60 million. That money has helped to:
- Fund more than 275 cutting-edge research projects.
- Create a travel program to help support families of children receiving treatment
- Develop resources to help people everywhere affected by childhood cancer
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. The foundation is the living embodiment of Alex’s spirit of determination and hope. Like Alex, we believe that every person can make a difference.
Pretty Muddy is proud to be partnering up with ALSF and will donate 2.5% of every entry to this great cause! Together, we can bring about a cure. Please join us in “making lemonade” today!
