Cancer Foundation Gets Aid From Chicago Volvo Fans
Volvo has teamed up with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) to support families battling pediatric cancer. Chicago Volvo owners can help donate to the cause by purchasing a virtual cup of ‘Peppermint Lemonade’ for only a dollar.
It’s The Time For Giving At The Chicago Volvo Dealership
In the year 2000, at the age of 4 Alexandria Scott opened the first front lawn lemonade stand with the goal of raising enough money to find a cure for all children with cancer. Her dedication to the cause and extraordinary work caught Volvo’s attention and earned her an inaugural Volvo for life Award in 2003. The award recognizes hometown heroes who are truly making a difference in their community. In Alex’s case, her efforts have left a lasting impression throughout the world. To date, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation has raised more than $35 million towards pediatric cancer research and support.
All along the way Volvo has supported Alex and the Alex Lemonade Stand Foundation. Back in 2004 at the age of 8 she set the goal of reaching $1 million dollars before the end of the year. However, she passed away in August of 2004 but with the knowledge that Volvo’s many dealerships and employees across the country would continue to sell lemonade in her honor. By the New Year, the lemonade stands had raised a total of $1.5 million dollars far exceeding Alex’s initial goal.
