We are excited to announce the formation of the CFI Portland team for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) Light the Night fundraising walk on October 27, 2012!
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 one 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 $500,000. 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 Portland - FBB (https://www.facebook.com/CFIPortlandLTN) or contact our Team Captain, Erin Mueller at erin.c.mueller @gmail.com. If you are ready to join the team and walk with us, visit our fundraising page: CFI Portland home page (http://pages.lightthenight.org/oswim/PortlndL12/CFIPortlandFBB). 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!
