FRISCO - Even as we head into “pumpkin spice-flavored everything” season, there's still nothing that quenches a thirst quite like an ice cold lemonade. That’s why selling it's always a great way to raise money for a good cause.

Saturday’s cause is something that affects all of us: the fight against cancer. Newman Village, a community located in Frisco, hosts an annual lemonade stand fundraiser to help raise money and awareness for pediatric cancer research. Texas State Representative Pat Fallon says it’s a great experience for everyone, "It's fun for the kids too because it teaches them civic involvement and being selfless and believing in a cause that's greater than yourself...and it's got yummy cookies and some nice refreshing lemonade on a very hot September Texas day."

"It's fun for the kids too because it teaches them civic involvement and being selfless and believing in a cause that's greater than yourself. And it's got yummy cookies and some nice refreshing lemonade on a very hot September Texas day."

This year's fundraiser was in honor of 8-year-old Jonny Wade who died of brain cancer last year. The fundraiser is in conjunction with the Kids Shouldn`t Have Cancer Foundation which was founded in Jonny`s memory.

Jonny’s mother, Kimberly, was in attendance to offer a helping hand.

"This is not just about Jonny," she said. It's about all the children affected by cancer and their lives going through treatment and possibly death."

Buying lemonade isn`t the only way you can help. If you`d like to make a donation just visit kidsshouldnthavecancer.org. Kimberly says she appreciates everyone who’s assisted her family after their loss. "The support has helped us greatly heal and take one day at a time and know that we are not alone in this fight."

Helping in the fight against cancer is something we can all take a stand for.
