Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation
263,000 children are diagnosed with cancer each year. We lose 250 each day.
Power is privileged to be a national corporate sponsor of a charity that is doing all they can to prevent the spread of this disease. A charity founded by a 4 year old hero named Alex, who succumbed to the disease at the age of 8. Although she did not get the chance to see what kind of impression she made on this world, she would be thrilled to know she has helped to raise more than $100 million for childhood cancer research.
Where do donations go?
Power donations, as well as donations from our customers:
- Fund more than 475 research grants at 102 medical institutions in 62 cities across the US and Canada
- Fund investigations of 23 types of new childhood cancers by ALSF researchers
- Provide more than 400 flights, 2,800 nights of lodging, and 17,000 gas cards for families who need to travel for treatment
- Enable successful clinical trials, like the one at Duke University, where researchers were recently able to shrink a lime sized tumor to the size of a pea
To date, Power is proud to have raised more than $530,000 for ALSF. But it’s simply not enough. Join us each June and every month throughout the year until we help ALSF researches find a cure!
