Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to finding cures for all kids with cancer, hosted the first annual Lemon Ride Bicycle Tour on Sunday, July 22nd in Doylestown. The event included cyclists of all calibers to contribute to the battle against childhood cancer by biking a 12-, 26- or 50-mile course.
The family friendly event also included children’s activities at the start/finish.
“In the last few years, the Foundation has grown our athletic events in the Philadelphia area to the point where they are highly sought-after,” said Jay Scott, Alex’s dad and Co-Executive Director of the Foundation. “With the success of our annual Lemon Run 5K, and our Team Lemon athletic program, we felt it was only a matter of time before we delved into cycling events. We are thrilled to host the first annual Lemon Ride this summer to further the opportunities for athletes to join the battle against childhood cancer.”
