Regional Alex's Lemonade Stand reaches $1 million mark this year

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Regional efforts for Alex’s Lemonade Stand reached the $1 million mark this year.

Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation is working to find a cure for childhood cancer.

HyVee presented a check today from fundraising efforts to Liz Scott, the mother of the little girl who started the now global effort.

“We’ve been able to raise $80 million and fund so much research to find new cures is something I think is beyond extraordinary and something I would have never imagined,” Scott said.

Kansas City first got involved in Alex’s Lemonade Stand in 2004 when a little boy in remission from cancer started his own lemonade stand.

It has since expanded to hundreds of volunteers around the metro.
