Lemonade Standemonium

Kids, take a stand for Cancer and have fun while you do it!  Join hundreds of kids across the country as they participate in the 7th Annual Lemonade Standemonium.  The countdown is on to the big event.  Make a  commitment to making a change.  Start planning today.

This year’s event, hosted by the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation and Candlelighters and presented by Cardel Homes, takes place on Saturday, June 1, 2019.

Getting involved and putting the squeeze on cancer is easy.


How can YOU get involved? Registering for the Great Canadian Lemonade Stand is easy!

  1. Join the Lemonade Brigade movement and make a STAND against cancer.
  2. Register your stand at www.ottawacancer.ca/lemonade.
  3. Recruit your family or friends to join your stand – the more the merrier! Everyone who registers online will be eligible to win great prizes.
  4. Plan out where you would like to host your stand. At a nearby store, at the end of your driveway, at a playground – there are loads of choices. But be sure to ask your parents for help in determining where to host your stand, and get permission from your chosen location.  You may also be able to host your stand a store or another busy location in your neighbourhood.
  5. Get your mom and dad involved and send an email to let family and friends know where your stand will be hosted, and a link to donate to your virtual stand. All this can be done through your online stand page.
  6. Get family and friends involved and design and build your own custom stand.
  7. Plan out your stand campaign. Decide when you will be hosting your stand – you can host a stand more than once leading up to June 1, and then on Lemonade Stand Day. Also, be sure to decide what you would like to serve at your stand. There are great recipes at www.ottawacancer. ca/lemonade.
  8. Host your stand on or before Saturday, June 1
  9. Drop off the funds raised at the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation (1500 Alta Vista Dr.) on Sunday, June 2 between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.
  10. Celebrate all of your successes and the work you have done to help local families who are facing cancer.
