Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Light the Night Fundraising Walk

For the second year in a row, the CFI Portland team will be walking in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's annual fundraising event.  Last year we raised almost $6,300 for life-saving cancer research and help for families affected by blood cancers, and were the #3 Friends and Family team for the 2012 Portland Walk.  Together, we can raise even more this year!

This is a great opportunity for our group to join together in a community outreach project, help raise money for lifesaving research, and raise awareness for nontheist charitable giving. Our team is part of the larger Foundation Beyond Belief (FBB) team, whose goal is to raise half a million U.S. dollars for the fight against cancer.  Helping us to reach our goal is the Stiefel Freethought Foundation, which has pledged to match every donation we bring in, dollar-for-dollar, up to $250,000.  It is time to rally behind something big that reflects our reason-based values and the things we believe in: the healing power of scientific research, education, and compassionate patient services.

For more information about our team, you can visit and "Like" our Facebook team page:CFI Warriors - FBB or contact our Team Co-Captains, Erin Mueller and Sara Wilkison at [masked].  If you are ready to join the team and walk with us, visit our fundraising page: CFI Warriors 2013.  There, you can either click to join the team or make a tax-deductible donation to LLS through the CFI Portland team. Please join us in this unique opportunity to raise money for a great cause while we also raise awareness for the good things the freethought community can do when we work together!

    Thanks to everyone who made it! I'm glad we all finally found one another--I wasn't anticipating my cell phone issues, but I'm glad it all worked out. The weather was great and it was a beautiful night for the walk. Hope we can get even more people involved next year!

    The route usually changes a bit from year to year, but here's a link to last year's route. We started at the Convention Center, walked across the Steel Bridge, through Waterfront Park, then back across the Morrison Bridge and along the Eastbank Esplanade to finish at the Convention Center.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
