CFI Warriors 2013 Fundraising Page

Welcome to YEAR FIVE of Warriors' Fight Against Blood Cancers!
Feb 14, 2013

Welcome to the Light The Night Walk homepage for the CFI-Portland and Warriors 4 Alex combined team: CFI Warriors! This is our second year walking as a combined team, and it marks the 5th LTN Walk for Warriors 4 Alex.

Last year we raised almost $6,300 for life-saving cancer research and help for families affected by blood cancers, and were the #3 Friends and Family team for the 2012 Portland Walk. Together, I know we can raise even more funds in 2013! Let's get together to rally behind something big that reflects our reason-based values and the things we believe in: the healing power of scientific research, education, and compassionate patient services!

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. Be sure to check our team Web site frequently to see our progress, and thanks for your support!

More about the LLS Light the Night Walk:

Light The Night Walk is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's annual fundraising walk to pay tribute and bring hope to people battling cancer. Hundreds of thousands of participants raise funds for lifesaving research and patient services.

For more than 60 years, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) has been solely focused on people with blood cancers. Presently, we have more than $250 million committed to research across the United States and in ten other countries. Every dollar is provided by concerned donors. We invest in the best, outcome based science:

  • Anywhere, with no geographic or institutional boundaries
  • Without profit incentive
  • To meet unmet Medicare needs of people with blood cancers

And LLS funded advances are helping patients beyond those for whom they were originally developed, including people with solid tumors and auto-immune diseases. In the past decade, nearly 50% (19 out of 39) of the cancer drugs approved by the FDA were approved as treatments for blood cancer patients. Twelve are already approved for people beyond those for whom they were first developed. With your help, we are saving lives.
