'Wants to help:' Lemonade stand in Mount Pleasant fights back against childhood cancer

MOUNT PLEASANT --  In a continuing effort to raise funds and awareness for the fight against childhood cancer, a lemonade stand will be held  Wednesday, June 5 to Friday, June 7 from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. each day at the Racine County Opportunity Center in Mt. Pleasant during Lemonade Days campaign.

The lemonade stand will benefit childhood cancer research through Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. Founded by Alex Scott (1996-2004) in 2004, Lemonade Days is a national event that grew out of Alex's front yard lemonade stand.
