Light the Night walk

We're walking this year to raise funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma society, which supports research to cure blood cancers. $0.78 of every $1 raised goes DIRECTLY to research.

The Cleveland Freethinkers team is under the umbrella of Foundation Beyond Belief; local teams around the country are pooling their funds through FBB to show the positive impact of secular groups. Come Light the Night with us!

Check out the links to join the team, make an online donation, and find out more about Light the Night. Timeline of events on Saturday and parking info are listed below the links.

    A pleasant walk. A little rainy. Good company with Gordon.

    I want to thank everyone who donated to this cause. The Cleveland Freethinkers ended up raising over $1,300.00. How awesome is that.

    Well, the irritating cold is now really bad. Won't be able to go tonight after all. So sorry to miss the walk, hope you all have a great time. See you soon!

    :( Just a heads up that the cold I've been fighting seems to be getting worse. I'll see how the day goes and if it's not too bad I'll still do the walk. But if it gets really bad I'll probably have to pass. Really hope that's not the case, I've been looking forward to this (especially since I haven't been able to go to a CFT event in a while). I'll give an update later today.

    If anyone wants to go out for drinks/snacks afterwards we can certainly do that. I'm not too familiar with that area, any ideas where to go?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
