Lemonade stand benefits pediatric cancer research

LOUDON COUNTY, Tenn. (WVLT) - A Loudon County boy's lemonade stand on Friday is benefiting pediatric cancer research.

Drew Myers has been holding lemonade stands for five years that benefit Alex's Lemonade Stand. It's a national organization that raises money for pediatric cancer research.

At the age of five, Drew told his mom he wanted to do something to help out kids who were suffering with cancer. He's been doing a yearly lemonade stand ever since.

This year, he stationed his lemonade stand outside the Loudon County Sheriff's Office. He was out serving lemonade and collecting donations from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

He hopes to raise at least $2,000.
