Light The Night

Unfortunately it's taken me getting cancer to really realize how important it is to support groups such as the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society - groups that fund cancer research and support cancer patients and survivors.  It's time for me to offer my support and I invite you to join me!

The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) has a "Light the Night" fundraising walk in Indianapolis on October 12, 2013.  Josh and I will be participating in this walk and I hope to have a huge group of friends and family join me!

If you'd like to join the walk, follow this link to register.  My team name is Holy Walkamolies, please be sure to join this team when you sign up!  Once you're signed up, you'll get a link to your personal fundraising page - this is the link you can share with your own friends and family to raise money for the walk.  There is no minimum fundraising amount to walk, but I'd like to challenge each person to raise at least $25 with our team goal being $1,000.

I'd like to ask all Holy Walkamolie team members to wear orange the day of the walk, which is a color I've chosen because it's bright and happy, and to me it represents strength and healing :)

Kids are welcome and strollers are permitted!  The walk is approximately 2 miles and begins and ends at Victory Field in downtown Indianapolis.  Before the walk, there will be food, entertainment, and fun stuff for the kids.  Gates open at 5:00 p.m. and the walk begins at 7:00 p.m.  Visit this link for more information.

I would LOVE to have a huge group of people show up wearing orange to support me in my battle with Hodgkin's Lymphoma and to support LLS and cancer research.  Too many people are being   affected by cancer, and it's time it stopped!  I hope you can join me!

For those of you who live far, can't participate, or wish not to, here's the link to my personal fundraising page - feel free to donate if you'd like:  Melissa's Fundraising Page

More info to follow, in the meantime please sign up and mark your calendars!
