Welcome to my Light The Night Walk Fundraising Page

 

My name is Gina Gorgone and I have been apart of the Young Heart's Light the Night walk team for the past three years and I can't wait to walk again this year! I have decided to step up my senior year and take a leadership role in this amazing organization. All of our Young Heart events are charitable events and I have the role of coordinating volunteers. In 2014 I reached my goal of raising $300, and this year I hope to raise a total of $1,000 to become a Bright Light. A Bright Light is an outstanding Light The Night walker and fundraiser that drives the mission of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society forward by raising $1,000 or more as an individual. In 2014, 444 Bright Lights raised more than half of the $2.6 million raised in the National Capital Area Chapter!

Light the Night consists of a 2 mile walk directed throughout our nation's capitol, how ever walking is not the only thing that occurs at this event! Preceding and following the walk is a performance by a live band that assists in the fun celebration, as well as the presence of a variety of food options. Being amidst teams of all different people who come together to fight for the same cause is an impactful experience that none of our Young Hearts team members would trade.

Our team goal is to reach $50,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). LLS is on the brink of incredible breakthroughs that have already begun to change the lives of thousands of patients; treatments that can manage a person's condition with a daily pill, therapies that seek out cancer cells and kill them, and the use of a patient's own immune system to eradicate cancer not someday, but today.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light The Night Walk funds those treatments.

At just 9 years old, Joseph was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). LLS was there with Joseph and his family from the very beginning with friendship, support and critical treatment information, through daily chemo, aches and pains, weight gain, lumbar punctures and daily clinic visits. Now Joseph is in remission.

 

Joseph's is just one of the thousands of lives saved because of the LLS work supported by people like you.
