ST. LOUIS COUNTY - The Lindbergh High School Band is in the middle of a marathon jam session.

The band began playing music at 7 a.m. Friday morning and will not stop until 7 p.m. Saturday. They're playing to honor their young friend, Alex, who lost a three year battle with cancer.

Lindbergh's Musicthon will benefit Alex's Lemonade Stand, a national group which is named for a young woman from Connecticut, and raises money for childhood cancer research.
