A motorcycle-loving 8-year-old’s roadside free lemonade (donations welcome) stand near Sturgis has raised tips amounting to $4,500 for the St. Jude Children's Hospital, and the planned split of 50% to college, 30% to St. Jude was a result of going viral after someone staying at a nearby campground posted about him on social media

The post on Twitter read:

If you are traveling between Rapid City and Sturgis on your bike, stop by the Tilford road exit!! There is a motorcycle loving little boy who is giving away free lemonade and water to any and every one. Please stop by and give him a huge thank you and show off your rides!!! The lemonade is DELICIOUS!!!! Also, tip the damn kid, it's hot out, and he's gonna need to start saving now for that Harley..

** update from this young man's dad. He will be donating 30% of his tips to St Judes, 50% goes to his college fund. He's helping a family friend accomplish a $5000 goal for St Judes this year. Get out there and support a kid doing some good in this world. He's out there at noon everyday. 3/4 of a mile down Sturgis Rd from the Tilford Exit on I90.**

**update #3. A bunch of people from all over started messenging me asking how to donate from afar. His dad got back to me with a venmo if anyone wants to go that route. @robinjaydennis
