Welcome to our Light The Night Walk Team Fundraising Page

Our friend Meredith just lost her boss and close friend of 18 years, Alan, to leukemia after a year long battle.  We could not think of a better way to honor him and support her than participating in this walk and raising money to help find a cure for these awful diseases.


When The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light The Night Walk funds treatments that save lives, it's all due to people like you. Without your efforts LLS could not provide these lifesaving treatments. LLS really is making cures happen with your help.

Friends, families and co-workers form fundraising teams and millions of consumers help by donating at retail outlets. These efforts culminate in inspirational, memorable evening walks in over two hundred communities each fall across North America.

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

    "I know how important Alan was to my sister, Meri Schorr. I never got to meet Alan and, having heard about him, feel like I lost out. I hope this meager donation can help someone else not go through the pain Meri and Alan's family are going through right now."

    "Although I never got to meet Alan, through Meredith Schorr, I feel like I've known him for years. A precious life taken too soon. My prayers are with Alan's Angels as they take action to fight this devastating disease. "

    "Alan was one of the finest and funniest people that I ever had the privilege of knowing. I worked with him for ten years at Townley & Updike and White & Case. Everyday, no matter how stressful, was filled with laughter and fun. These years were the best of my working career. I will miss our lunches at Annie Moore's! Your light shines on in everyone's heart that you have touched! What a wonderful legacy to leave behind you. A life will lived, but sadly cut to short... "

    "I worked with Alan for 15 years. Alan was a gentlemen, in every sense of the word. I so admired his patience and tolerance. We have all suffered a terrible loss. It makes me think of that famous line from the song � �Only the good die young�. I will miss him very much. "
