Children's Lemonade Stand Supports Boy with Down Syndrome

A very sweet community effort!

WELLINGTON, Kan. — Every little bit helps, when a family is going through tough times. One group of children is helping out with a lemonade stand at 708 S. Washington Ave., in Wellington. Proceeds are going towards helping out a local family whose six-month old was diagnosed with Down Syndrome.

"Shortly after he was born he was diagnosed with Down Syndrome," said Dana Lago, about her son Aaron. "We've gotten really involved with the Down Syndrome Society since then."
Since being born, Aaron has had multiple operations.

"He's gone through open heart surgeries and stomach surgeries," Lago said. "And pretty much helping raise money to support him, and children just like him." The kids working the lemonade stand said it's been a good day, having sold a lot of lemonade, and received a good amount of donations to the Down Syndrome Society.
