The Department of Medicine Research Administration team at Duke University will be sponsoring a lemonade stand and bake sale in cooperation with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation’s Lemonade Days.

Participation from individuals, families in the community, businesses and childhood cancer hero families make this a special time to take a (lemonade) stand against childhood cancer. 100% of all donations made in person or online will go directly to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.
