Breakthru, Tito's Join The Fight Against Childhood Cancer

12/9/2016

For four-year-old Alexandra Scott, the journey to ending childhood cancer started with one front yard lemonade stand.

 

Those who have been affected by childhood cancer may be familiar with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. The nonprofit has been a leader in funding research projects to fight childhood cancer. Since the mission started in 2000–with that lemonade stand–ALSF has raised over $127 million, funding 650 lifesaving research projects.

 

Sadly, Alex’s own fight with neuroblastoma ended in 2004 at the unfair age of eight. However, Alex’s charge to find cures for pediatric cancers strives forward with ALSF, and the fight against childhood cancer is one Breakthru Pennsylvania and Tito’s Handmade Vodka is proud to support.

 

“We are honored to partner with Tito’s to support the incredible work of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation,” said Breakthru Beverage President PJ Horgan. “Their vision of a world without childhood cancer is one that we can all appreciate and get behind, and our team members are excited to take part in the journey.”

 

Breakthru PA and Tito’s recently served as sponsors for The Lemon Run, ALSF’s yearly charity 5K run. The sponsorship donation of $5,000 will directly fun critically-needed research grants to scientists working on identifying better treatments and cures. Over 80 Breakthru employees, family and friends joined the cause by participating in the 5K.

 

In addition to supporting The Lemon Run, Breakthru PA raised over $1,000 for ALSF earlier this fall as part of the “Breakthru Believes Charity of the Month” program.

 

Thank you to all of the Breakthru PA employees for helping support a very important cause, and thank you to our friends at Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for taking the lead in defeating childhood cancer.
