Eden Prairie Girl Uses Lemonade Stand to Raise Money for Cancer Research
Eden Prairie resident Chloe Russo, 10, has been raising money to help fight kids cancer since she was 6 years old. How? Through a lemonade and cupcake stand.
According to the Sun Current, Russo got the idea from Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. Alex Scott ran her first stand in 2000 after a stem cell transplant due to neuroblastoma and wanted to raise money for cancer research. She passed away in 2004, the newspaper said.
Inspired, Russo started her stand four years ago and has already raised over $4,000 and hoping to make it to $10,000 soon.
“This year I’m hoping that even more people come out to show their support for kids who are battling cancer so they know they are not alone and that people care about them, because I do,” Chloe told the newspaper.
