HAMPTON ROADS, Va. — When life gives you lemons, make lemonade, and help CHKD help hundreds of kids suffering from cancer.

Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters teamed up with Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield to help raise awareness and funds for the fight against childhood cancer with its Anthem LemonAid weekend.

The weekend of giving at CHKD was from July 19 to July 21.

Families, businesses and community groups were encouraged to register and participate to benefit childhood cancer treatment, according to the hospital.

In 2018, 785 LemonAid stands raised more than $95,000 for CHKD’s cancer program.

To support the success of the LemonAid stands, each participant received a free LemonAid kit that included lemonade mix, cups, a pitcher, signs and more.

Lemonade was sold for a $1 donation and 100 percent of proceeds benefited CHKD’s cancer program.
