Anthem LemonAid opens registration for July 14-16


Registration for Anthem LemonAid is now open, and Richmond-area families, businesses and community organizations can look forward to joining together this summer to support local kids with cancer.

It’s free to participate and supplies are provided; just register to set up a lemonade stand the weekend of July 14-16. Every registered participant will receive lemonade mix, cups, a pitcher, a banner, stickers and sunglasses.

Stands can be set up at one of the approved partner retail locations or at a place of participants’ choosing, such as a local business, front yard, or neighborhood pool. Participants will distribute cups of lemonade in exchange for donations and 100 percent of all funds raised will support the $250,000 fundraising goal.

Sponsored by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, Anthem LemonAid is Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals’ signature summer event and has been helping kids with cancer since 2001. The event is in the second year of a $250,000 commitment to the Infusion Center in CHoR’s Hematology and Oncology Clinic, where children with cancer receive chemotherapy, blood transfusions, and immune system boosting infusions. Additional event sponsors include Children’s Hospital Foundation, Lakeside Avenue Business Association, Virginia Credit Union, RVA Primrose Schools, Walmart, Sam’s Club, Kroger and Walgreens.

Caroline Morris, diagnosed in 2015, has been undergoing treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukemia, the most common form of childhood cancer, at Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU (CHoR). Caroline set up her first Anthem LemonAid stand last summer, complete with homemade lemon cookies and a matching lemon outfit.

Her plans for this summer’s stand are already underway, and she is excited about the chance to top the $764 she raised at her stand last year to give back to CHoR, the hospital that has helped her so much. Caroline now requires only monthly visits to CHoR and is scheduled to be finished with her active treatment in August.
