Each year, in communities all across the United States and Canada, families, friends, neighbors and teams from local businesses and national companies come together for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS's) Light The Night Walk events to bring help and hope to people battling blood cancers.
Funds raised by walkers provide:
*Lifesaving blood cancer research *Financial assistance to cover patient expenses for transportation, medication and testing *Free educational materials and events for patients and their families *Local programs such as Family Support Groups and First Connection, a peer-to-peer counseling program *Comprehensive, personalized assistance through our Information Resource Center
Light The Night Walk events are evenings filled with inspiration. Carrying illuminated balloons, thousands of walkers - men, women and children - form a community of caring, bringing light to the dark world of cancer.
Whether you're a cancer survivor, supporting someone who is battling cancer or have lost a loved one, please join us and help Light The Night.
Sept 12 - Tacoma: Ruston Way Waterfront (2 miles) Sept 26 - Seattle: Green Lake Park (2.8 miles)
I WILL CREATE A TEAM FOR EACH WALK, IF THERE IS ENOUGH INTEREST. THEY ENCOURAGE AT LEAST 10 MEMBERS FOR EACH TEAM, AND THAT EACH TEAM RAISE AT LEAST $2000.
THAT WOULD BE EASY, IN LESS THAN A MONTH, SPARK THE STAIRS RAISED OVER $1700 AS A TEAM!
PLEASE POST IF YOU ARE INTERESTED, AND WHICH WALK YOU WOULD LIKE TO DO!
