Lemonade Stand Raises Money For Childhood Cancer

Rochester, N.Y. � It wasn�t an ordinary lemonade stand serving up cold drinks Saturday at the Rochester Public Market.

It was Alex�s Lemonade Stand, a nationwide foundation that raises money to fight childhood cancer.

The foundation pays tribute to a young girl named Alex Scott, who died of cancer in 2004 at age 8.

The stand raised more than $2,000 Saturday and will be at the Brighton Farmers Market Sunday from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m.

Money raised from the stand in the Rochester area will go toward finding better treatment for kids with leukemia.

�We've made a lot of progress,� said Michael Baranello, a University of Rochester graduate student. �We started from scratch, basically, with this project, so now we're getting into more complex studies, and hopefully we'll get renewed and we'll do more later on."
