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.

When Baker Botts lawyers and staff raised more than $100,000 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) last year, little did they know that their efforts would go to support a research project aimed at trying to develop a new treatment for children with leukemia.

Recently, LLS officials notified Baker Botts management that the Firm’s level of fund raising in 2012 qualified it as an “Alliance Partner” with the opportunity to align itself with a specific research program.

After reviewing a list of on-going LLS-supported research efforts, Baker Botts became a “partner” with Dr. Scott Armstrong at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York. Dr. Armstrong, a pediatric oncologist specializing in the treatment of children with leukemia, is currently engaged in studying MLL fusion genes in leukemogenesis in hopes of developing new therapies that are more effective and less toxic in battling cancer.

Recognizing that blood cancers have touched the Baker Botts community repeatedly, the Firm has supported LLS in a variety of ways over the years, including supporting and encouraging employees and lawyers in their LLS volunteer and fundraising roles, providing sponsorships for LLS events, and providing pro bono legal services.

The Firm has received LLS's Chairman's Citation for being a leading LLS partner for more than a decade.

Dallas partner Tim Durst is chairman of the national Board of Directors of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). His term as LLS board chair began July 1, 2012. Durst has served in several capacities with LLS, beginning in 1999 during his son's successful treatment for leukemia.
