“Anthem is proud to be a part of this growing event and we encourage everyone to take part by either participating or visiting a stand during Anthem Lemonaid weekend,” said C. Burke King, president, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Virginia.
Registration for this year's event -- slated for the weekend of July 18-20 -- will begin in April.
Children and families throughout the Hampton Roads area will host hundreds of Lemonaid stands to support kids fighting cancer. Families, businesses and community groups are encouraged to register and participate to benefit childhood cancer treatment at CHKD.
Last year, 801 Lemonaid stands raised $101,804 for CHKD's cancer program and Anthem provided a $20,000 sponsorship.
To help make your stand a success, each participant will receive a FREE Lemonaid kit that includes lemonade mix, cups, pitcher, signs and more. Cups (12 oz.) of lemonade are sold for $1 each and 100 percent of the proceeds will benefit CHKD's cancer program.
