make a miracle in July

I would love to see you head on over to the registration page for where you can register to run an ACTUAL or a VIRTUAL lemonade stand to help the kids of Carilion Clinic Children’s Hospital by selling lemonade to your friends and family and donating it to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

Please go to the registration page to sign up and make miracles happen in your own front yard, school, church or via an on-line donation campaign. It’s a great way for kids to be creative and do good during the summer. There is even a contest for the most creative lemonade stand.

CMN provides all your supplies. You and your kids provide the enthusiasm and the water.


Drink lemondade. Make miracles.
