Welcome to the Duke Raleigh Light The Night Walk Team Fundraising Page


2017 Honorary Team Captains Dr. David Zaas and Dr. Aimee Zaas

On February 14, 2017, the President of Duke Raleigh Hospital - Dr. David Zaas - was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). Duke Raleigh employees rallied behind Dr. Zaas in his absence, sending hundreds of cards, wearing "Kick Leukemia's zAss" shirts, and participating in a head shaving challenge that raised more than $20,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. We are glad to have Dr. Zaas back at work full-time, cancer free!  We are excited to have David and Aimee Zaas sharing their battle against leukemia and now leading our efforts as the Honorary Team Captains for the Duke Raleigh Light the Night Team.

The Light the Night Walk is an occasion to celebrate survivors like Dr. Zaas, and to give hope to those still fighting. Duke Raleigh is proud to continue to support the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in this effort, to provide patient support services, advocate for lifesaving treatments, and fund promising cancer research.  Thanks to dedicated people like you, funds raised from The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Light Night Walk help support the research of blood cancer treatments that save lives.  Without your efforts LLS could not fund the research of such treatments as targeted therapies that zero in on cancer cells and kill them or immunotherapy drugs that use a patient's own immune system to kill cancer.


Please join our team's effort today by registering to walk or by making a donation, and we'll see you October 28!


Thank you for bringing us all closer to living in a world without blood cancers!
