Glen Ellyn 3-on-3 tourney a slam dunk for Children's Hospital
Brain tumor survivor calls on former Glenbard West stars to support inaugural event
GLEN ELLYN – Soon after having surgery to remove a brain tumor at age 7, Reid Colliander and his family decided they wanted to give back to the hospital that helped save his life.
Reid’s Lemon-AID Foundation started with a lemonade stand at a Fourth of July parade 10 years ago. The Glenbard West High School basketball player has gone on to raise nearly $100,000 for the Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago (formerly Children’s Memorial Hospital), according to the foundation’s website.
But it’s not just him. Colliander estimates close to 150 kids have volunteered for the fundraising efforts throughout the years, including a Christmas Walk, bike rides and chili cook-offs.
