Summer camp students at Bethesda Country Day School in Bethesda recently collected nearly $250 to benefit Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a childhood cancer foundation dedicated to raising funds for research to help cure childhood cancer.
Throughout July, the campers sold a variety of items, including lemonade and baked goods, as well as handmade bracelets, keychains and magnets, to raise money for the organization.
