The Power Run is just one of several fundraising initiatives the company will hold this year as a national corporate sponsor of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF), one of the leading foundations for pediatric cancer, having raised more than $40 million and funded more than 150 cutting-edge research projects.

Since announcing the partnership in April, Power has committed to donate one dollar per window, per square foot of siding and per square foot of roofing installed throughout the year in an effort to raise awareness of pediatric cancer within each of the markets Power offers home improvement services. In 2010, Power installed energy-saving and environmentally friendly solutions to more than 14,000 homes, totaling $132 million in sales and is on track to donate at least $300,000 to ALSF in 2011.
