THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
15th Annual Light The Night Walk
THE BUFFALO LIGHT THE NIGHT WALK RAISED A RECORD BREAKING $425,000
& STILL COUNTING!
Your Support Helps Blood Cancer Patients Live Better, Longer Lives!
On behalf of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and the patients we serve, thank you for your tremendous fundraising efforts! With your help, the Buffalo Light The Night Walk raised a record breaking $425,000 & STILL COUNTING to support our mission in finding cures for blood cancer. Thank you to all of our CHAMPIONS FOR CURES! Also, special thanks to our BRIGHT LIGHTS CLUB members who raised $1,000 or more!
We could not have asked for a more perfect fall evening as more than 3,000 participants helped to light up the night with red, white & gold illuminated balloons. Our walkers celebrated raising funds to fight blood cancers as they enjoyed food, beverages & festivities including live music from the Uncle Fester Band and 8 Beat Measure, clowns, face painters, and mascots.
Thanks to you and our generous community, we are making a real impact in the lives of people with cancer, their families and caregivers. Donations received through the Light The Night Walk accelerate treatment advances once thought impossible - like targeted drugs that seek out cancer cells and kill them, and immunotherapies that use a patient's immune system to kill cancer. Funds also support patient aid and services for local patients and their families.
You can continue to make a difference!
If you are close to becoming a Champion for Cures or would like to qualify for other incentives, please consider updating your webpage with a photo of your team at the event & your experience, and send one last email asking those who had not had a chance to donate to help you reach your fundraising goal.
For those who registered but were unexpectedly unable to attend the walk, please turn in all donations to our Chapter Office. These participants are also encouraged to continue fundraising. You can still make a difference and impact the lives of local patients!
Any other outstanding pledges or additional funds may be sent into our Chapter Office. Please include a note with your name and team name (if applicable) so that the funds are credited to your account. Checks should be made payable to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and sent to:
