Hey Everyone!

Light the Night for the Leukemia and Lymphoma fundraiser is quickly approaching. We are walking as the North Bay Skeptics in association with the Foundation Beyond Belief International team started by Todd Stiefel.

About the FBB team we have united with,

"The FBB international team is 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. Our goal is to unite the Freethought Movement around the world to raise one million U.S. Dollars in 2012 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).

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.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society funds lifesaving research that has contributed to major advances in the treatment of blood cancers and treatments for other types of cancer, such as chemotherapy and stem cell transplants. New targeted therapies that kill cancer cells without harming normal tissue are providing drugs and procedures that are improving quality of life."

I have set the North Bay Skeptics team goal at $1000, but I'm hoping we can do better than that.

Please consider joining us or making a donation if you are able.

I am writing this from Davis, but I promise to return for this event and hopefully continue to visit you when I can.

Thank you in advance to all of those who can help.
