Join Me and Participate in Alex’s Million Mile #Journey2aMillion


ALSFsquareOver the summer I was privileged enough to be introduced to a cause that is both wonderful and inspiring that I’m glad to now be a part of. I want to tell you all about Alex’s Million Mile and Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation..
Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation began in 2001 when a 4-year-old girl named Alex Scott decided she wanted to sell lemonade in order to help raise money to find a cure for children with cancer.  Alex, herself, was a child battling cancer at the time and while she sadly lost her battle in the end, she fought with such positivity that it translated into everything she accomplished, including her Lemonade Stand.

Her idea has since evolved into a national fund raising movement with thousands of supporters across the country that carry on hope through her legacy. Alex’s Lemonade Stand is a unique childhood cancer charity that is dramatically changing the landscape of pediatric cancer.
Alex Scott has proven that even the littlest person can make a huge difference in the world. Alex’s Lemonade Stand encourages charitable giving to communities and neighborhoods and makes donating a reward for everyone involved.Web
Tuesday, September 1st, the 2015 Alex’s Million Mile run.walk.ride begins. Alex’s Million Mile is a month-long event organized by Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation that runs throughout September (which is also childhood cancer awareness month). The goal is to have as many people as possible run, walk, and/or ride 1,000,000 miles total to raise funds and increase awareness of the need to support childhood cancer research.  This year, I have made a pledge to partake in Alex’s Million Mile.  I am walking, running and riding to raise awareness and to try and raise money to find better treatments and cures for children who are battling cancer. 1,000,000 miles may sound like an unattainable goal but a little 4-year old girl named Alex Scott has already proven that anyone can reach seemingly impossible goals.
During the month of September ALSF at has a goal to collectively gain 1,000,000 miles to raise funds and increase awareness and all you have to do is register at Alexsmillionmile.org to join. Signing up is free and registration will remain open through the month of September you can create your own team or join me on Team MomConfessionals. But I encourage you all to partake in such a wonderful cause.2015_AMM_FB_banner_public draft2_0
