There are several ways our top Executive Challengers will be recognized, both nationally and locally.


  • Challenge participants individually raising $10,000 or more will be in the spring 2025 edition of the LLS Philanthropy Impact Report. The top 5 executives across the nation will be included with a photo.
  • The top 5 executives nationally will be posted here.

Personal Benefits:

  • Having a direct connection to how much money is raised for research.
  • Celebrating your success by lighting the night at the Walk and thanking your supporters after the event.
  • Knowing YOU made an impact by inspiring and motivating others to bring us all closer to a world without cancer.
