CHECK-IN & FUNDRAISING
Q: Is there a fundraising minimum?
No, there is not a fundraising minimum to participate in the walk. We encourage all participants to beat the national average of $250. Be a Champion For Cures by raising over $100 and earn a 2016 Light The Night t-shirt.
Q: Do I have to raise a $100 as an individual or as a team?
To receive the Champion for Cures benefits, you need to raise $100 as an individual.
Q: How do I turn in cash and checks?
The easiest way to accept/deposit a check donation is by using the MyLLS smartphone app, which you can download here. The app's cutting-edge features include the ability to accept and immediately process donations via credit card and check, and social media integration.
Checks can also be mailed to the LLS office. Be sure to include the name of the participant to whom the donation should be credited to. Please do not mail cash. Cash should be turned into a money order and mailed, or delivered in person to the LLS office or at Light The Night.
