Simon on Lemons

Celebrate Simon's 9th birthday with us at the second annual Simon's Birthday Lemonade Stand on May 17, 2006 in Salt Lake City!

Our 2005 lemonade stand in Salt Lake City raised $800, so we have set a goal of raising $800 through online contributions for this year's event. Any gift, large or small, is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Radio Interview
May 3, 2006 - Markus, Mary, and Miriam gave a 20-minute live interview along with Liz Scott, mother of Alex Scott, on KCPW, a National Public Radio affiliate station in Salt Lake City. Everyone did a great job, and Miriam was especially amazing on-air!

Simon's friends will also host Simon's Birthday Lemonade Stand from 3:30-6:30 pm, with the proceeds of each glass sold going to fund pediatric cancer research.
