Team THRIVE THROUGH CANCER
Aug 23, 2012
Welcome to the THRIVE THROUGH CANCER Light The Night Walk Team homepage.
Thrive's mission is to help young adults fight cancer today and live amazing lives tomorrow! That is exactly what the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society has accomplished by supporting cancer patients and funding research that saves lives.
In May 2011 founder Rose Egge was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic lymphoma. Throughout her treatment, Rose benefitted first-hand from the informative and financial resources of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
"I would not be alive today if it were not for others who funded the research that killed my cancer," Rose says.
On August 14, Thrive supporter and dear friend Austen Everett lost her life to Non-Hodgkins lymphoma. This year, the Thrive Through Cancer team dedicates its fundraising efforts to Austen and will raise money to find a cure so that more lives will not be lost to blood cancer.
Please join our team and join us in an incredibly uplifting walk around Green Lake! There is no fundraising minimum and each team member will get a shirt on walk day! Plus, we will all enjoy a picnic together on the lawn before the walk.
It's a fun way to make a difference and support the fight against cancer!
