WALK because someone's life depends on it.
SAVE THE DATE!
JOIN US FOR THE BUFFALO LIGHT THE NIGHT WALK
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2013
Light The Night is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) international evening fundraising walk to celebrate & commemorate lives touched by cancer. Light The Night supports LLS's mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma, hodgkin's disease & myeloma and improve the quality of life for patients & their families.
Participants form teams of family, friends & coworkers who raise funds and gather together to "light the night" & bring hope to local blood cancer patients. Participants receive an illuminated balloon to carry during the Walk. A special white balloon identifies cancer survivors, all supporters carry red balloons, and gold balloons are carried in memory of a loved one.
WE NEED YOU!
The Western & Central NY Chapter serves a roster of over 4,000 patients. Your fundraising efforts help make it possible to fund vital patient services, like peer counseling, patient financial aid, four local research projects, advocacy & so much more!
