DENTON (7/25/05) - The Mean Green helped raise over a $1,000 for Alex’s Lemonade Stand and Pediatric Cancer Research last week at a Denton Outlaws baseball game at the Ballpark on Bonnie Brae in Denton. The athletic department would like to thank everyone for their generous donations.
Tory and Meredith Dickey hosted the event and were on hand to sell lemonade to thirsty fans last Tuesday. All proceeds benefited Alex’s Lemonade Stand and Pediatric Cancer Research. Donations were made in honor of Madie McElroy.
Alexandra "Alex" Scott was the 8-year-old founder of Alex’s Lemonade Stand For Pediatric Cancer Research. Two days before her first birthday she was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, an aggressive childhood cancer. At the age of four, Alex decided to do something to make that cure more likely. She opened her first lemonade stand in July of 2000 with the idea of donating the proceeds to "her hospital." Each year since, Alex has held an annual lemonade stand in her front yard. As word has spread, donations have poured in from around the world, and she has raised over $2,500,000 for pediatric cancer.
