With her birthday around the corner, and wanting to avoid the usual bar outing, she decided to recruit her friends to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and complete the Light the Night Walk. It was such a good idea, I decided to rally my own friends and join her!
Combined, our teams raised $7000 for leukemia and lymphoma research!!
I interpreted the overwhelming response from friends and family who were willing to donate as proof of how eager everyone was to help out, not just my close friends and family.
So, this year, I'm doing it again! Next Sunday, I'll join thousands of survivors and supporters in the 5km Run for the Cure. If you, like so many others, are eager for a way to help, you can sponsor me at this link.
Sometimes fundraising can be a nuisance. Other times, it can be an opportunity for your loved ones to show you that they care!
