Light the Night

It's fall, one of my favorite times of year. Leaves crunch beneath our toes. Chilly breezes kiss our cheeks. The night sky seems so bright and clear. Life is good.

Across the country people are taking full advantage of the brisk fall weather to come together in love, hope and with a common bond and purpose. They are walking to Light the Night.

What is Light the Night? It's an event designed to bring help and hope to people battling blood cancers. Leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma are monsters, and those who fight them need all the support we can muster. Information on these cancers can be found at the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Won't you consider taking part in your local walk? The event will inspire and enrich. And I promise, you'll feel so much better for having helped out.

Wouldn't it be great if we could wipe out blood cancers? Who knows? With enough funding for research we may just be able to do step at a time.

What a worthwhile event. I checked the site and it looks like something my kids would love to do with me. Walking at night--they're in, LOL. Thank you for letting me know about this.

I had no idea about this. Thanks for bringing attention to it. Sounds like a fun night and a good cause!

I'll second this! It's a great event. Please consider taking part or supporting a walker. A little girl in my son's preschool class was diagnosed with leukemia. That was how I came to hear about it. She is now in remission, but her family is very active with this!
