UFCW members all across the country are excited for the 2015 Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) Light the Night Walks. We hope you will consider joining us this year at this great event.
Light the Night Walks happen in communities all across the country. During these evening walks, participants carry illuminated lanterns – white for survivors, red for supporters, and gold in memory of loved ones lost to blood cancer. The walks are inspirational and memorable for all involved.
Funds raised by your team will go towards discovering breakthrough therapies and cures for people suffering from blood cancers like Leukemia, Lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease, and Myeloma.
This year, we have a Light the Night website just for the UFCW. As we begin to form our Light the Night Walk teams, please make sure to visit http://pages.lightthenight.org/2015/ufcw.
Here you can:
- Find a Light the Night Walk that is near you
- Register your Local Union’s Light the Night team
- Set up your team’s fundraising page
To get started, talk to your local to see if there is already a Light the Night team. If not, ask about forming one and make sure your local’s team is registered on the UFCW Light the Night page. After your team is registered, you can recruit walkers and send them to your team page to register.
The UFCW Light the Night website will track our fundraising progress as well as keep a list of the top-performing UFCW locals and fundraisers. So be sure to check it often.
