I wanted to thank everyone who came to my lemonade stand to raise money for children’s cancer research. You all helped me to raise even more than my goal of $1,500 this year -- together we raised $3,167.14! It was so exciting to have the Eden Prairie Police Department come by and buy lemonade (my mom said other states were closing down kids' stands); cancer survivors donated $100 each; the Lions came out to support the cause and even the Eden Prairie Fire Department came. I saw their huge fire engine coming down the street and I jumped up and down, knowing that they were coming for lemonade!
