Our next CitySolve Urban Race is in Philadelphia, the land that is home of the Liberty Bell and rich in American history! If your tickets are purchased [purchase tickets here]  and you’re all set for the CitySolve Philadelphia race, perhaps there is one more thing you should consider: do you need to grab some sweet new running gear before the heat of the race? (Answer: YES!)

Well, if you answered “YES!” or even “Probably,” then sprint on down to the Philadelphia Runner! The experienced staff there will help you with all your needs. Whether you just want some simple running shoes or some intense, athletic, “I’m going to run 100 miles!” shoes, everyone at the Philadelphia Runner will be able to eliminate the guesswork and help you select the most comfortable gear that is best suited to your preferences.

The store is run by locals who just want to serve the community by providing high-quality running equipment for the people of Philly. Since 2004, they have been doing just that and now have a second store to better fulfill their goal. In addition to providing gear, they also offer services such as gait analysis and notification of community running events so Philadelphians can be aware of opportunities to share the joy of running with the community.

The Philadelphia Runner will be our Packet Pick-Up site for the Philadelphia race. Check out their website at www.philadelphiarunner.com and don’t forget to register for the race! See you all there!

Make Lemonade out of Lemons

Alex's Lemonade Stand

“When life hands you lemons, make lemonade.”

A young founder, creator, and inspiration for Alex’s Lemonade Stand, Alexandra “Alex” Scott is the prime example of this saying. Battling with cancer since before she was even the age of one, Alex decided to hold her front-yard lemonade stand at age four to donate all proceeds towards helping doctors find a cure for cancer. Her first lemonade stand was an immediate success, raising $2,000 for her cause. While fighting cancer herself, Alex set up this lemonade stand every year afterwards and others inspired by Alex’s determination set up their own lemonade stand and donated to her cause as well.

By 2004, when Alex Scott passed away from battling cancer at eight years old, her lemonade stand and inspiration raised over $1 million for finding the cure for the cancer that took her life. In 2005, her parents, in honor of their daughter, started Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation to continue Alex’s work, and this organization continues to raise money to help find the cure for cancer while empowering children who, like Alex, suffer with cancer.

Alex’s Lemonade Stand strives to raise money and awareness for childhood cancer, particularly for research into new treatments and cures. Not only is Alex’s Lemonade Stand a charity to help improve research for treatment and cures for cancer, but also an inspiration and encouragement, especially for children, to get involved and take a stand for children with cancer.

CitySolve Urban Race Philadelphia is extremely excited to partner with such an inspirational cause. Do you want to partner with Alex’s Lemonade Stand and help children suffering with cancer? Well, you can by joining us here. Learn more about CitySolve Urban Race Philadelphia.
