Light the Night this Saturday

Last year, we participated in the Light the Night walk to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS). With Tyler's health issues this year, we have backed off on raising a bunch of money for the LLS. I am still planning to walk this year in honor of Tyler and Cathy Frank (a relative who passed away from leukemia) and welcome any of you that want to join me.

The walk takes place at Greenlake on Saturday, September 20. Anyone who raises at least $50 gets an illuminated balloon to carry, which makes a beautiful sight as the evening light fades to darkness. If you decide that you want to walk, you can register online by joining Team Firefly. Click the icon to "Join Team" and search for Team Firefly. You can also sign up at the event!

Festivities begin at 5:30pm on Sept 20th, including registration. All fundraising participants will receive an illuminated balloon and that they encourage each participant to fundraise to the minimum of $50.00.

The Remembrance Ceremony is at 6:00pm & the walk starts at 7:00pm

There are shuttles from the Bathhouse Theater & Aqua Theater parking lots, please use them as the Green Lake Park parking lot is open to the public at all times & parking in there can get sticky. We cannot save any parking spaces, sorry.

All the funds raised go toward the mission of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society: to cure blood cancers & improve the quality of life of our patients & their families.

Please let us know if you plan to walk with us, so that we can meet up with you.
