EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (WCCO) – An Eden Prairie girl made lemons into lemonade to raise money for childhood cancer.

Six-year-old Chloe Russo hosted her own Alex’s Lemonade Stand as part of the National Lemonade Days. It didn’t stop with just lemonade. Chloe also had cookies, cupcakes and brownies.

She was hoping to raise $600 and it looks like she’ll surpass that amount.

“Cancer is a kind of sickness. I don’t want other people to get sick and other people to get better. So I want them to get better and feel better,” Chloe said.

Alex’s Lemonade Stand was founded by Alex Scott who died of cancer in 2004. Across the country, the stands have raised more than one million dollars for childhood cancer research.
