Aside from his acting and hosting chops, Mario Lopez is known for his chiseled abs. As a result, it’s refreshing to know that this “Saved by the Bell” star isn’t afraid to indulge in some delightful treats.
Earlier this month, the “Extra” host partnered with Hot Dog on a Stick for its 70th Anniversary celebration that aims to “Stomp Out Cancer” by raising raising $70,000 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).
The kicked off its anniversary celebrations with a celebrity lemonade Stomp-A-Thon featuring Lopez.
Per a release, “Mario learned to stomp lemonade with LLS’ honored patient heroes including three year old Kylie, who was diagnosed with Leukemia just two days before her second birthday.”
Kylie was put into a clinical trial for her type of cancer and is currently in remission. Thanks to help from LLS, she will continue maintenance treatment over the next several years.
“Kylie is an amazing little fighter and one great lemonade stomper too!” said Katie Hiller, mother of LLS Honored Hero, Kylie.
“Hot Dog on a Stick’s Stomp-A-Thon was an inspirational and uplifting event and their fundraising efforts will help children like Kylie stomp out cancer for years to come. Please consider donating to their campaign to make a difference in the lives of blood cancer patients and their families.”
The Stomp-A-Thon for LLS was held at Hot Dog on a Stick’s Muscle Beach location in Santa Monica and raised more than $15,000 for cancer research.
