See our campaign featured on this nationally televised TODAY show segment:
Our national movement engages families, communities and corporations in the fight to find a way to prevent and cure breast cancer. Our team is on a mission to inspire as many people as possible to #MakeAStand and leverage our collective strength by turning lemonade stands pink and raising funds to BE THE END of breast cancer. Our campaign has grown, but we know we could do more by tapping into the creative minds and passionate hearts of college students. Although the current pandemic may postpone pink lemonade stands in summer 2020, WE WILL USE THIS PAUSE TO PLAN FOR THE FUTURE! We are looking for a few talented and committed super star interns to help us grow from stands in 25+ states in 2019 to stands in all 50 in 2021! We are developing a strategy and plan for October 2020, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, 2021 and beyond!
