Throughout his career with the Royals Alex Gordon has joined Royals Charities to support Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF).
The organization is dedicated to raise money and awareness of childhood cancer causes, treatments and cures.
You can help turn lemons into lemonade, and join Alex to give hope to kids facing cancer through any of the following initiatives:
The Alex Gordon Classic youth baseball tournament, presented by Price Chopper, to benefit the Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, presented by Midwest Sports Productions, brings together over 120 teams across the Midwest to play and raise money to battle childhood cancer. Gordon appears at the event to address the participants sharing his passion both youth baseball and battling cancer. The top fundraising teams are invited to watch batting practice, participate in pregame activities with Gordon prior to enjoying the Royals game. The event has raised more than $60,000 in its two year history.
Jamie Gordon, wife of outfielder Alex Gordon, leads the Royals Wives and their children in selling lemonade to raise money for Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation in the Outfield Experience at Kauffman Stadium. In addition, Royals Wives sell mystery bags featuring a baseball autographed by a Royals player.
For every freshly squeezed lemonade sold at Kauffman Stadium, Aramark and Royals Charities will make a donation to Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation.
Visit the fresh squeezed lemonade stands throughout the stadium and support childhood cancer research.
At participating Missouri and Kansas Papa John's locations, customers can purchase a large 5-topping or specialty pizza for $12, with $1 from each sale being donated to Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation.
Over the years, Gordon has joined children battling cancer to record public service announcements to support Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation. Sadly, some of the children featured in the video have lost their battle with cancer. However, their memory has fueled the passion to continue on to find a cure!
In additional efforts to fund childhood cancer research, Gordon also serves as a Team Jack All-Star by lending his support through a special t-shirt. The organization was started by the family of fellow Nebraska native Jack Hoffman to raise awareness for pediatric brain cancer.
