SB Presbyterian’s lemonade stand benefits childhood cancer research through Max’s Ring of Fire


Since 2009, Solana Beach Presbyterian Church has designated a Sunday where it closes its worship doors, goes out to the community and serves the through service projects up and down the coast.

One of the 100 projects the church does is a Lemonade Stand to benefit Max’s Ring of Fire, a local non-profit that raises money and awareness for childhood cancer research. Carmel Valley residents and church members founded Max’s Ring of Fire after their son, Max Mikulak, died in 2008 at age 7 from a common form of childhood cancer.

On Feb. 22, at Skyline Elementary School in Solana Beach, the lemonade stand was operated by church members to raise money for research and treatments that benefit kids fighting cancer. For more information visit
