Let's Walk to the End of Cancer
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
Thanks to the caring individuals in the Rochester community who came out to help us Walk to the End of Cancer at our 14th Annual Light The Night Walk
THE ROCHESTER LIGHT THE NIGHT WALK RAISED OVER $140,000 & 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 Rochester Light The Night Walk raised over $140,000 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!
It was a beautiful fall evening, a perfect night for a walk. It was a wonderful setting as the red, white and gold illuminated balloons lit the skies as more than 1,200 caring participants walked the course & enjoyed the festivites, including live music from New York Rockin' Revue.
Thanks to you and our generous community, we are making a real impact in the lives of people with cancer, their families and caregivers. Funds raised will support blood cancer research, like those research projects we fund at the University of Rochester, and free education 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:

YOUR FUNDRAISING WEBSITES ARE STILL OPEN!
Many of you have asked & YES, you can still fundraise! We encourage participants to continue fundraising to become Champions for Cures & reach the $100 mark, or to $250 or more for higher level incentive prizes! So go ahead, send one final email blast, post to Facebook or text with your link & ask everyone to help you reach your goal! Please remember to thank your donors for their support.
Thank You to Our Local Corporate Sponsors!
