PhysicianOne Urgent Care to Join Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation to Continue the Fight Against Childhood Cancer
PhysicianOne Urgent Care to donate funds to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) from lemonade stands across Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Westchester, NY
BROOKFIELD, CT., JUNE 1, 2017 – With Memorial Day in the rearview, the summer of 2017 has unofficially begun. This year, PhysicianOne Urgent Care is kicking-off the season by helping to kick childhood cancer to the curb, as a partner of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation’s Lemonade Days. New this year, Lemonade Days runs for a full week, June 3rd-June 10th.
Alex’s Lemonade Days is a national volunteer fundraiser commemorating ALSF founder, eight-year-old Alexandra “Alex” Scott’s challenge to help her raise $1 million for childhood cancer cures, one cup of lemonade at a time. PhysicianOne Urgent care is hosting 18 lemonade stands between June 1 and June 10 to continue Alex’s mission and bring renewed attention to the fight against childhood cancer. Since 2004, more than 24,000 Lemonade Days stands have been held nationally, raising over $13 million. One hundred percent of the proceeds raised during PhysicianOne Urgent Care events will be donated to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.
“We are proud to support Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation across all of our communities during Lemonade Days. Many of our providers specialized in Pediatrics before joining PhysicianOne Urgent Care, so childrens’ causes are near and dear to us,” said Andrea Tager, Director of Marketing at PhysicianOne Urgent Care.
Founded in 2008 by three physicians in Connecticut, PhysicianOne Urgent Care is an industry-leader with 12 locations in Connecticut, four in Massachusetts, and two in Westchester County, New York. Additional locations are set to open throughout 2017.
