Announcing the formation of the CFI Portland - FBB fundraising team!
Jun 04, 2012
Welcome to the home page of CFI Portland's Light the Night fundraising team. We are part of the larger Foundation Beyond Belief (FBB) international team, whose goal is to unite the Freethought Movement around the world to raise one million U.S. Dollars in 2012 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). To support this goal, the Stiefel family has pledged to match the first $500,000 we raise for LLS! This means that every donation made through our team will have twice the impact in terms of research dollars and support for families affected by cancer.
The Light The Night Walk is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's evening walk and fundraising event to pay tribute and bring hope to people battling cancer. Thousands of participants raise funds for vital, lifesaving research and patient services and, on these special nights, they carry illuminated balloons in a show of support from a caring community.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society funds lifesaving research that has contributed to major advances in the treatment of blood cancers and treatments for other types of cancer, such as chemotherapy and stem cell transplants. New targeted therapies that kill cancer cells without harming normal tissue are providing drugs and procedures that are improving quality of life.
All walkers are encouraged to become Champions For Cures by raising $100 or more to help fight blood cancer. Walkers who raise $100 or more will receive night of walk benefits including:
- Light The Night t-shirt
- Light The Night balloon
- Wristband which entitles the walker to food and refreshments
Please join our team's effort today by registering to walk or by making a donation. Your participation in the Light The Night Walk will help save lives. To learn more about our team and to follow our progress, visit and "Like" our Facebook team page: CFI Portland - FBB. Thanks for your support!
