Light The Night Walk

 

 

The Light The Night Walk is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's evening walk and fundraising event to pay tribute and bring hope to people battling cancer. Thousands of participants raise funds for vital, lifesaving research and patient services and, on these special nights, they carry illuminated balloons in a show of support from a caring community.

We are putting together a big group to represent for secular humanism here in Houston, as part of the Foundation Beyond Belief's network of teams.  Please join our team's effort today by registering to walk or by making a donation on our Humanists of Houston team page.

Following a record-setting first year (highest non-corporate fundraising in LTN history), the 2013 FBB international team is again going to be a rallying point around which local freethought, atheist, and secular humanist groups will make teams to participate in Light the Night Walks. FBB's 2013 goal is to unite the freethought movement around the world to raise $500,000 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). The Stiefel Freethought Foundation has pledged to match the first $250,000 raised for LLS until December 31, 2013, including corporate matches.

This event has great potential to raise the positive profile of humanism, atheism, skepticism and freethought, locally and nationally.  Thanks for your support!
