Cardel Lemonade Standemonium 2020

June 6, 2020
To Our Lemonade Standemonium Family:
In order to limit the spread of COVID-19 and to ensure we are doing our part to protect our community’s health while continuing to support and provide the best cancer care in Eastern Ontario, the Cancer Foundation is postponing the Cardel Lemonade Standemonium originally scheduled for June 6, 2020.
We still hope to paint the town yellow later this year! While we don’t have a confirmed date yet, we will continue to monitor the situation closely, following the recommendations and regulations put in place by municipal, provincial, and national health authorities to ensure we select a date that is safe for our participants and donors.
That being said, when life serves up lemons, we make lemonade and 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!
While we won’t have stands popping up across the city on June 6, virtual lemonade stands are still open! So you can register, personalize your virtual stand, take part in weekly lemonade-themed activities, and kick-start your 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 as the situation progresses. You can also follow-us on social media.
We look forward to *clinking* glasses of lemonade with you at your live lemonade stands later this year!
1. Register Your Team
We understand team stands come together in many different forms. To identify which type of team stand you are please click back to the landing page of the website (www.itakeastand.ca), choose which type of team stand best fits, and begin with the registration process.
