Our 2022 Awardees:
Alex Scott & The Scott Family
Dr. Audrey E. Evans Award of Excellence
Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of 4-year-old Alex Scott, who was fighting cancer and wanted to raise money to find cures for all children with cancer. Her spirit and determination inspired others to support her cause, and when she passed away at the age of 8, she had raised $1 million dollars. The Foundation has gone on to raise over $250 million to fight childhood cancer and has funded over 1,000 research projects.
