I have chosen Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation as my charity for Stark Naked 2018. Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged as a front yard lemonade stand for cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004). Since Alex held that first stand, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of volunteers across the country carrying on her legacy of hope. To date, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, has raised more than $150 million toward fulfilling Alex’s dream of finding a cure, funding over 800 research projects nationally.
Alex's Lemonade Stand is dear to my heart, as my nephew Fionn was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (A.L.L) at the age of 4. As I watched my brother-in-law's family fight for their brave son, we supported the family the best that we could from afar. Fionny has battled and kicked cancer's butt, and each year he hosts his own lemonade stand and raises money for this amazing foundation. I am honored to raise money for Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation!
