I am so excited to be able to walk with The Young Hearts for a second year for Light the Night in Washington D.C.! Last year was my first experience with this walk, and I could not have been more proud of our team's accomplishments. We were able to raise $75,000 and were ranked the Top Friends and Family Team. The Walk around D.C. is an amazing way for all the teams who participate to recognize and celebrate how amazing this cause truly is.  

 

Not only do the Young Hearts and myself fundraise for survivors and people currently battling cancer alike, but also to remember those we have lost to it. Unfortunately, many of the Young Hearts have a close connection to blood cancers, including myself. In 2014, my friend Katie Kress passed after a long fight with Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Through her entire journey with the disease, she never let it alter her positive attitude and outlook on life. She used social media as a forum to share her story with her thousands of followers and allowed others to reach out to her for support who may be going through a similar situation. Seeing her relentlessness to help others inspired me to join the Young Hearts and fight for people around the world just like Katie.

 

This year, I will walk with The Young Hearts as a Light The Night Captain! Anything you can donate to the Leukemia and and Lymphoma Society's mission means you are helping us all come closer to a world without cancer. Be a part of the cure!
