Crushing Cancer 4 Kids 5K Run/Walk
Saturday September 13, 2014
9:00 AM until 11:00 AM

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month! Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) is is hosting a virtual event called the Million Mile Run. Our event may only be 5K, but that multiplied by lots of participants adds up fast! Last year, this run raised and donated in excess of $5,000.00!

Alexandra "Alex" Scott founded Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation on what seemed to be a simple concept. In the year 2000, when Alex was just 4 years old and battling neuroblastoma, she told her parents that she wanted to have a lemonade stand in her front yard. She surprised everyone when she announced her plan to donate the money from the stand to "her hospital" to help the doctors find a cure for all kids with cancer. This event is being hosted by Fitness Together in Lexington and sponsored by FLIR in Billerica and Arlex Oil in Lexington in efforts to raise money and awareness for the battle against childhood cancer. Thank you for joining us in support of this amazing Foundation!

Reinventing the Map

Reinventing the Map
Susan Schulten, Professor, University of Denver

In a culture saturated with maps, we are accustomed to making them instantly and representing virtually any type of data. Technology makes this possible, but our contemporary use of maps is rooted in a shift that took place well over a century ago. In the 19th century Americans began to use maps not only to identify locations and represent the landscape, but to organize, display, and analyze information. Through maps of the environment, the distribution of the institution of slavery, the census, epidemics, and even their own history, Americans learned to view themselves and their nation in new ways. This program, part of a series related to the Museum and Librarys collection of historic maps is sponsored by the Ruby W. and LaVon P. Linn Foundation. Free.
