Football players raise money to fight pediatric cancer with lemonade stand

Article by Student Reporter Faith Degawa

Senior and Junior Houston football players Andy Belles (long snapper) and George Vezina (kicker) teamed up with Kick-It for Cancer and began a fundraiser to support the fight against pediatric cancer throughout the 2022 football season through Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.


They wanted to take advantage of how well they feel Houston operates their teams by taking the opportunity to utilize their talents and abilities for a cause beyond the field.

Andy and George found the foundation through Kohl's Professional Camps for kickers, punters, and snappers. The camp is also a partner of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.

They have raised over $1,000 since August 6th and will continue accepting donations throughout the football season (until December 2nd).
