To Our Lemonade Standemonium Family:
To limit the spread of COVID-19 and ensure our community's health while continuing to support and provide the best cancer care in Eastern Ontario, the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation and Cardel Homes have decided to take our popular fundraising event online in 2020 and raise funds throughout the month of August.
When life serves up lemons, as it has in so many ways this year, we still make lemonade! We hope that you can help us make the best out of these uncertain times and spread some sunshine virtually, rather than in liquid form! Thousands of lives touched by cancer in our community still need your support.
Today in Ottawa, 30,000 people are in treatment for cancer and half of them will experience a disruption in their treatment because of COVID 19. In this most challenging of years for so many people, another 8,000 people in Ottawa will be told they have cancer. Generating financial support and strengthening local cancer care, research and clinical trials have never been more important than it is right now.
While we won't have stands popping up across the city, virtual lemonade stands are springing up online and raising funds throughout August!
Register and personalize your virtual lemonade stand and kick-start your online fundraising by asking friends and family for their support.
We will continue to communicate with you regularly by email during the coming weeks to keep you up to date. You can also follow us on social media.
We look forward to *clinking* glasses of lemonade with you at your live lemonade in the future!
