Disclosure: Alex’s Lemonade Stand did send me a t-shirt as a thank you for posting about the Million Mile Run. Any information shared outside of the Million Mile Run was done out of my own free will to support National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. All opinions are 100% my own.
Today marks day one of National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and day one of my posts. Please see the bottom of this post to see who you can donate today, where and how.

I started following Alex’s Lemonade Stand on Twitter a few months ago.
Then, I was provided the opportunity to share about them and their Million Mile Run on my blog post – how as I to say no!?
About Alex’s Lemonade Stand:
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.
About the Million Mile Run:
To find a cure for childhood cancer, we’re going the distance…one million miles. That’s a long way, but a parent of a child with cancer would go that far (and then some) to find a cure. Join Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation during the month of September (Childhood Cancer Awareness Month) as we collectively run or walk one million miles to raise funds and spread the word of the need to support childhood cancer research.
In short, Alex vowed to raise $1 million so why not walk/run a million miles in hopes of raising $1 million!? If each participant in the Million Mile Run gets $10 per mile – that goal is absolutely obtainable.
Additionally, the miles walked can be logged online so you can do the miles anywhere!
If you don’t want to walk, but want to donate, you can find their donation page here.
