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.
