Teens Use Lemonade Stand to Generate Breast Cancer Walk Donations

A group of women raises money for breast cancer research via lemonade stand.

According to the Daily Bulletin, the women in Barbara Jo Kishbaum's family are active in the fight against breast cancer. Kishbaum, 76, has been raising money for the cause for years, and has recently recruited her daughter, granddaughter and another family member. The ladies held their annual lemonade stand on Saturday, June 21, in order to raise money to send two girls on the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. Sara, Kishbaum's granddaughter, and Maddie, Sara's cousin, will be taking part in the walk in September. 

Sara hopes to participate in the youth crew, a team of kids who help with walk operations. To do so, she must raise $500. Maddie will be walking in the event and must raise $1,800. The girls plan on using money raised from their lemonade stand to fund their donation to the Avon Walk. The annual lemonade stand has garnered attention from local businesses, and Panera Bread and the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory will donate pastries to the effort.

"It's amazing how much the community supports us," Debra Johnson, Sara's mother, told the source. "Nothing seems to stop people from donating for the cause."

The Avon Walk for Breast Cancer is a two-day event in which participants travel 39 miles by foot. The money raised by the walk helps fund breast cancer research.
