Anthem LemonAid
July 17 - August 15

Join us as we make a big difference for local kids fighting cancer!
 

Grab some lemons and get the kids to "join" us! This year, we are excited to continue helping local children and families faced with cancer diagnoses by kicking off the summer with virtual only LemonAid stands. Join us July 17 - August 15 as we continue the tradition of LemonAid memory-making. 

We invite Hampton Roads area families, businesses and community organizations to join us. New this year, Anthem LemonAid will consist of four interactive challenges that you can participate in with family, friends, colleagues and more. 

Register to host a virtual fundraising page, and choose one or more of our challenges to participate in. Share your fundraising page as well as photos and videos from your challenges with friends and family, and encourage them to Squeeze the Day as we put the squeeze on childhood cancer. 

Our mission remains the same: raise funds to benefit Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters' cancer program.
