Light The Night Walk Lymphoma & Leukemia Society


I was honored to be asked to lead a group in this years 2010 Light The Night walk to be held October 9th starting at 5:30 in Houston's Discovery Green Park. Part of my responsibilities included fund raising. With my ongoing health problems I failed miserably in that area. The funds go to support the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's ,mission to cure blood cancers and improve quality of life of patients and their families. They have personally helped me the last three years and I hope to return the favor.
I had hoped to walk with my cousin, friends and family, but my close cousin who is a whiz at fundraising is not feeling up to the walk. She battles her own cancer while supporting me in more ways than one.
So now I have simplified my goal. I hope to attend and walk as much as possible. All walkers who raise $100 will receive a wristband which entitles them to a light the night T-Shirt, illuminated balloon & refreshments.
Although my friends and family can not join me, maybe I can get my daughter off work. I want to be there. My goal is $100. for the walk. At this late date I can collect a check at my daughters this weekend or it could be Paypaled to txplumber@gmail.com
The following day the Texans will be playing the Giants and the Grilling Tail Gaters will be offering koozies and wristbands to raise funds. More information will follow but that is sure to be a blast and an opportunity to send a check to LLS.
Time is of the essence and I hope you can help spread the word. Friends and family have been remarkable. Bringing tears to my eyes to see the shear numbers that come out to support in time of need.
I hope you can help fell free to call me at (832) 496-1453. Roger
