Val (my boyfriend) and I are walking in memory of his father THIS Thursday night for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I just found out about the walk and have been gearing up as fast as I can. Val lost his father to a nine year battle with Lymphocytic Leukemia on August 27th of this year, only a couple of months ago. We are looking for sponsors/donations BUT we could use some help spreading the word as well.
I have never gotten the chance to do any of the charity walks so this will be our first. I have severe Lymphedema so I am going to be wrapped to the knees or higher on both legs. I’m calling it my early Halloween costume, hence the “mummy walk”. hehe
I am busy making pins for us and flyers for Art for Cures and hope to garner some interest for the upcoming auctions. I am putting the auction pieces together this week for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society benefit. How ironic that I would find this Light the Night walk benefiting the same charity. Talk about good timing. hehe
If you could pass the word around, even if you can’t donate, I would be really grateful. Check the site too because there are walks going on all over the country and I know they would love more volunteers and walkers!
Thank you for taking the time to read this and for your help!
