There are various fundraisers that I participate in each year and one of them comes up tonight. A couple of months back I told you about this - it's the Light the Night Walk which raises funds and awareness for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. If you are in San Francisco, come join us tonight at 5pm at AT&T Park. There is still time to sign up and there is still time to walk. If you wish to sponsor me, click HERE.
I mention awareness, because that is a very importan part of this. How many of you are familiar with leukemia? What causes it? How do you live with it? What can be done about it. Several times I have written here about blood cancers, because I think it's important. Events like this are a great way to spread information and to get more people involved. If you are not in the San Francisco area, chances are there will be a walk near you too. Click HERE to find an event near you.
By the way, there is also a memorial portion of these events. Just before the walk begins, there is time set aside to honor the survivors and to remember those who have died. I have found it to be very comforting.
The dollars we have raised so far help give blood cancer patients the support they need and help save lives. Let's all keep working towards a world without blood cancer. You are making a difference!
