Welcome Houston Freethinkers!

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 Statesand 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

Our team is part of the Foundation Beyond Belief group. With hundreds of non-theist teams participating, the FBB goal is to raise $500,000, which will be matched by a generous donor. That means $1 million donated by secular, caring critical thinkers who are HUMANkind. Since we are often labeled as "not believing in anything," this is the perfect opportunity to show what we DO believe in -- medical research, science-based solutions and compassionate care for victims and their families

  • A donation of $25 provides patients and their loved ones with FREE booklets that help them make informed decisions about their treatment options.
  • A donation of $50 makes possible a Family Support group with a trained facilitator where comfort can be found and experiences can be shared.
  • A donation of $100 helps supply laboratory researchers with supplies and materials critical to carrying out their search for cures.
  • A donation of $1,000 makes possible one- on-one conversations with health care specialists.

Please join Houston Freethought FBB today by registering to walk or by making a donation. Your participation will help save lives. Be sure to check our team Web site frequently to see our progress, and thanks for your support!
