When life gave her lemons, Alexandra �Alex� Scott made lemonade to help fight her own battle with pediatric cancer.  At the age of 4, she hosted her first lemonade stand, and before her heartbreaking pass in 2004, Alex raised more than $1 million dollars in hopes to find a cure. Today, more than 15 years later we honor Alex�s legacy and continue her dream to end childhood cancer. As a proud partner of Alex�s Lemonade Stand Foundation for more than 11 years, The Malvern School is excited to kick-off another successful fundraising season and have the opportunity to contribute to an amazing cause. April marks the official start of our 2019 fundraising season and this year The Malvern Schools are squeezing together to raise $150,000 to fight pediatric cancer! From April 1 st to July 31 st, all 26 Malvern School locations will host multiple fundraising events, including a school-wide Lemonade Stand Day on Friday, June 7 th.  In addition to fundraising, Lemonade Stand Day will also spill into the classroom, and ALSF will be incorporated into all of the lesson plans throughout the day. Teaching students the value of helping others makes the experience that much sweeter! Where does the money go? Each year Alex�s Lemonade Stand Foundation comes that much closer to finding a cure for children with cancer. Money raised by partners like The Malvern School helps fund groundbreaking medical research, provide resources for emotional support, and aid families with travel expenses and medical bills. In 2018 alone Alex�s Lemonade Stand Foundation�
  • Funded 100 new pediatric cancer research projects
  • Provided 2,500 nights of lodging and 1.6 million miles of gas cards to 986 families to ease their financial burden
  • Provided comfort and care to more than 2,100 children who have a sibling with cancer through the SuperSibs program
