LELAND, NC (WECT) -

A Leland family hosted their 4th annual lemonade stand Saturday in a continuing effort to raise money and awareness in the fight against childhood Cancer.

The lemonade stand at the Grayson Park pool, put on by the Voll family, benefits childhood cancer research through Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF).

Krissy Voll started the lemonade stand four years ago after hearing about ALSF on the Today Show. She thought it was a good way to teach her son about giving back.

"I have three healthy children that I am so grateful for," Voll said. "My husband and I are both nurses so we see have seen the other side of sick children and what their families go through."

During the first year of doing the lemonade stand, the Voll family learned that two of their neighbors are childhood cancer survivors and now they honor and celebrate them during this event every year.

Last year they raised $1,200. This year their goal is to beat that.
