There are great people you meet along the way, who inspire you to do great things yourself. For me, my mom Teddy Fritts, and my friend Wilson Fang were two such people. I'm in San Francisco this morning to do something I have done a number of times before, but today I do it in their memory. Cancer is a terrible things, but they both fought with courage, and both lost their battles way too soon.
The Light the Night Walk is a fundraising campaign benefiting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and their funding of research to find blood cancer cures. Walks take place on various dates at cities all across the country. In addition to raising money, they also raise awareness. Before each walk, there is also a remembrance ceremony which is very strengthening for the participant. I try hard each year to let folks know I am doing this, so I can raise a good amount of money and really make a difference. If you have been touched by any cancers, you might like to donate money or to even participate in a future event. To sponsor me, just click HERE. ANY amount can be donated.
Mom and Wilson were an inspiration, and I miss them both. Tonight I join with so many others to Light the Night in their memory. Find out more and get involved too at http://www.lightthenight.org/
