Welcome to our Team's Homepage

Welcome to the Cleveland Clinic Team's Light The Night Walk homepage.
Light The Night Walk is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's evening walk and fundraising event.
For the past few years, Cleveland Clinic employees have joined the fight against cancer by supporting LLS’s Light The Night Walk. Last year, our LTN team had 130 registered walkers and raised $9,767.19 naming us the "#1 Corporate fundraising team". I know we can do that again this year. Our participation in this year's walk will help LLS’s mission—a mission we share: cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
LLS has a profound impact on Cleveland Clinic patients. Not only do they provide patient services, but they fund life-saving research that is conducted at Main Campus and at some of our regional sites. A groundbreaking partnership between CCF and LLS has increased access and participation in clinical trials among blood cancer patients by bringing treatment closer to home for many patients.
Please join us in supporting Cleveland’s Light The Night Walk event on September 24, 2011 at the Wolstein Center. Festivities begin at 5:00 p.m. and the actual two-mile walk starts at 7:00 p.m. All employees are invited to attend this fun, family event. By participating you’ll enjoy an extraordinary experience, celebrating and commemorating lives touched by cancer while also positively impacting the community we serve.
Our goal is to have 125 walkers on our walk team—this includes employees, their families and friends—and to raise $10,000. There is no required registration fee, but we encourage each walker to raise at least $100 which would put us well beyond our team goal!
Guest Bartending Update!
Both the East and West side did an excellent job representing their side of town! Between the two events about 200 people participated and collectively we raised nearly $3,000 for our LTN team!!
Special thanks to the West Side group, especially Michelle Parson, Cathy Hugney, Dr. Kerwin, and Dr. Bagai who helped us raised $1,000 for LLS!
Although both sides did a wonderful job, the East Side takes the cake for the "Best Part of Town". The East side raised $1,954 for the CCF LTN team. Special thanks to Drs. Sweetenham, Pohlman, Dean, Duong, and Copelan for their help!
Stay tuned for our next event! In the meantime, check out pictures from the bartending event at the link below! Username: Maggioa@ccf.org and Password: ccfltn2011
