During April 2017, students and staff members from Greenwood Elementary raised more than $10,200 by hosting 13 lemonade stands.
Students kicked off the 2017 charitable drive at an assembly. Fundraisers included lemonade stands at community locations as well as a competition between classrooms.
Funds raised through ALSF pay for medical research to find cures for childhood cancer. Through donations to the Foundation, $50 will pay for one hour of research, $400 pays for one day, $2,000 pays for one week and $8,000 pays for one month.
