Towson athletes are participating in Alex’s Lemonade stand for the second straight year. On Saturday, October 25th, Baseball manned Alex’s Lemonade Stand at the Swimming and Diving Meet, raising a season high $105.15, and on Sunday, the 26th, the Women’s Swimming and Diving team manned the Stand during the Women’s Soccer game raising $97.28.
All donations collected are sent to the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation to fund Pediatric Cancer Research and join the fight against Childhood Cancer. Each of Towson’s 20 athletic teams takes a turn offering free lemonade and collecting donations at selected Spirit Events throughout the year., “fighting childhood cancer one cup at a time!”
Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation evolved from a young cancer patient's front yard lemonade stand to a nationwide fundraising movement to find a cure for childhood cancer. Since Alexandra "Alex" Scott (1996-2004) set up her front-yard stand at the age of four, more than $25 million has been raised towards fulfilling her dream of finding a cure for all children with cancer
Last year Towson Student-Athletes raised over $1,300, with Men’s Golf raising the most, $400, at a Gymnastics Meet in February. The TU teams are already off to a great start again this year!
