This is the 14th year walking as a team to help support The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. They've raised over $60,000 through the years to support the wonderful research and support programs provided by the Society. The Light the Night Walk 2002 was one of the first events to keep Johnny's memory alive. Fourteen years later they continue to walk for Johnny and all the other "Johnnies" out there.
Please consider making a donation to support Team Remembering Johnny or joining us on Sunday, November 1st!
Thanks to dedicated people like you, funds raised from The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Light The Night Walk help support the research of blood cancer treatments that save lives.
The Light The Night Walk brings together families and communities to honor blood cancer survivors, as well as those lost to the diseases, and our team is helping to shine a light on the importance of finding cures and providing access to treatments for blood cancer patients.
Without your efforts LLS could not fund the research of such treatments as targeted therapies that zero in on cancer cells and kill them or immunotherapy drugs that use a patient's own immune system to kill 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 200 communities across North America each fall.
Please check out the pictures on the "Photo Gallery" page.

On a rainy April 26, 2016, Grand Councilor Jeff Masse and Junior Councilor Dennis Walsh, both of Manchester 195, made a clothing donation to Liberty House, a veteran's shelter designed to help veterans transition out of homelessness. The clothing consisted of finer shirts, pants and shoes to help the veteran's to be able to dress more appropriately for important functions such as job interviews. The clothing was greatly accepted by Liberty House ensuring us it would be put to good use.

UCT kicked off the Kaye Trainer International Capital Campaign for special hockey programs in North America 2 years ago. This is an ongoing campaign until we reach our total campaign goal of raising $182,500, or 73 Kaye Trainer devices. Currently donations stand at just over $62,000, about a third of the total UCT is seeking.
What is a Kaye Trainer? It’s a physical therapy device used in rehabilitation centers worldwide and manufactured by Kaye Products. Originally designed for recovery from traumatic leg/hip injuries or illnesses, special hockey programs have discovered an alternative use for the device. According to Dave Chase of the Valencia S.N.A.P. Flyers special hockey program in Valencia, Calif., “The device is THE safest way to teach someone how to skate!”
The campaign is designed to supply every special hockey program with a Kaye Trainer, which includes suspension and harness. In total, each device costs $2,500, including shipping. Every donation helps and 100% of your contribution is tax deductible.
How can you help? You can donate online through PayPal, or checks can be made payable to UCT Charities* and mailed to the UCT home office at: UCT, Attn. Jen Szymczak, 1801 Watermark Drive, Suite 100, Columbus, OH 43215. Each time a donation is made, the amount and the donor is made visible on the UCT home page
