Frequently Asked Questions
1. Where should I set up my stand?
For Anthem LemonAid this year, participants have two options: host a physical lemonade stand or participate virtually in one of our three lemon-inspired virtual challenges (or both!). For participants who choose to host a physical stand, our Anthem LemonAid kits will come with all the standard supplies like lemonade mix and cups as well as special items to promote safe interactions, including hand sanitizer and masks. Educational materials outlining CDC guidelines for maintaining proper social distancing and practicing appropriate mask coverage will also be shared.
2. How do I turn in my money?
Most fundraising will be collected through participant fundraising pages this year. However, if you do have a check or money order you’d like to mail, please send to the address below.

6. What are the different challenges?
We have designed three lemon-inspired challenges to participate in! We want this event to be fun for all ages and hope you find that at least one inspires you. Be sure to think creatively!
Put The Squeeze on Cancer Lemon Challenge - Record yourself eating a sour lemon and share on your social media channels. Encourage friends, family and colleagues to donate to your page and then pass the challenge along by nominating/tagging someone to participate.
Kick-out Cancer Sports Challenge - Record yourself incorporating a lemon into your favorite sports! Examples: hit a lemon off of a golf tee, hit a lemon with a baseball bat, play a game of lacrosse with a lemon, etc.
Stir Up A Cure Baking Challenge - Post a picture or video of a lemon-inspired dish or record your own “baking show”.
