For the second straight year, the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin was a Silver Sponsor of the Eastern North Carolina Chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) annual “Light the Night” Walks in Raleigh, NC and Durham, NC.

“Several members of our firm family have been effected by these devastating diseases, and we wanted to support them through sponsoring these walks,” says founder and president James Scott Farrin.

For the second straight year, the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin was a Silver Sponsor of the Eastern North Carolina Chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) annual “Light the Night” Walks in Raleigh, NC and Durham, NC.

The two-mile Raleigh, NC loop walk, held on Oct. 9, began and ended at Halifax Mall in downtown Raleigh. The two-mile Durham, NC walk, held on Oct. 22, centered around the American Tobacco Campus near downtown Durham.

In addition to the firm sponsorship, about 40 employees raised funds individually as part of the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin Walking Team. The firm’s social service committee also held a bake sale for fellow employees to raise money for the event.

“Several members of our firm family have been effected by these devastating diseases, and we wanted to support them through sponsoring these walks,” says founder and president James Scott Farrin.

“In addition to firm sponsorship, I am touched that so many firm members and their families spent their personal time participating in the Durham, NC Light the Night Walk and raising money for this worthwhile cause.”

According to Emily Roland, Campaign Manager for the Triangle (NC) Light The Night Walk, nearly 4,000 people participated in the two Triangle Walks, raising $400,000 for blood cancer research and patient services.

“We are grateful to many generous individuals and sponsors who have lent their support to this year’s Light The Night Walks,” Roland said, “Their participation goes a long way toward bringing attention to the critical need to find cures and provide families with ongoing care and support.”

Light the Night events are held each year in communities across the United States and Canada. Individuals and teams gather pledges to raise money for blood cancer research, education and patient support. Thousands of walkers carry illuminated balloons – gold in memorial for loved ones lost, white for survivors and red for supporters – shining a hopeful light in the dark world of cancer. Since its founding in 1949, The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) has invested more than $600 million in research targeting blood cancers such as leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma, including providing more than $6.5 million to support local cancer research at UNC-Chapel Hill and Duke University. Funds are also used to provide vital services and healthcare information to patients and their families.
