After sponsoring the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light the Night Walks in 2013, Sylvan Learning is proudly expanding our relationship as a Special Friend of LLS in 2014.
This year, Sylvan Learning hopes to raise more than $250,000 to support the LLS mission through fundraising initiatives at our 800 Sylvan Learning franchise locations, as well as taking steps to cure blood cancers with employee and center staff participation at Light the Night Walks across the country.
Our franchisees, employees and customers are coming together to advance this meaningful cause not only through monetary support, but also by playing an active role in the lives of the affected child and family. After receiving treatment for leukemia or lymphoma, the journey back to normal is a long one. One challenge in particular where we're lending our support is in helping young patients overcome the return to school after missing countless days of class.
Through the LLS partnership, Sylvan Learning will be providing additional scholarship funding to young patients in need of educational services. In addition, local Sylvan Learning franchisees and LLS chapters will collaborate to identify and provide the much-needed educational support to young patients in their communities.
