On Wednesday night, I accompanied a good friend to Pamela Sorensen‘s fundraiser for LLS: Light the Night Walk at L2 Lounge.
According to the LLS website:
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Light The Night Walk funds lifesaving research and support for people battling cancer. Friends, families and co-workers form fundraising teams and millions of consumers help by donating at retail outlets. These efforts culminate in inspirational, memorable evening walks in over two hundred communities each fall across North America.
Anyone can take part – children, adults and seniors are all welcome. This is a casual fundraising walk with no fitness requirements. There are many ways you can help. You can register to walk individually or as part of a team; just make a donation online; or become a volunteer or sponsor/partner. See local walk sites for time and date information.
Back in the 80’s, I had a cousin who was diagnosed with Leukemia at a very young age and thankfully, she beat it! Considering this was 20 years ago, the funding to support better cures and medicines to support longer lives is much more advanced and it’s because of the donations of generous people who have been affected or feel compelled to help.
Good luck to Pamela in raising funds to help beat this form of cancer!
