Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 29, 2012
Fundinco.org and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society are teaming up to offer a unique new fundraiser that allows Light The Night Walk teams to raise funds without soliciting for direct donations. Instead, supporters simply shop online and a portion of the proceeds go back to LLS. Every year, in communities all across the United States and Canada teams of families, friends, co-workers and local and national corporations come together to raise funds for Light The Night Walk events and bring help and hope to people battling blood cancers.
Light the Night Walk team captains must register their teams via the Fundinco.org Light the Night website prior to fundraising with Fundinco. Fundinco also will provide teams with a complete toolkit designed to help them spread the word to their friends, family, and colleagues.
"We are very excited about the opportunity to partner with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society for this fantastic event in October. We are looking forward to raising additional funds in unique ways to further support the cause," says Kelly Mahoney, Fundinco.org's Director of Sales.
"We are so appreciative to Fundinco for this opportunity,” says LLS Executive Director Pam Swenk. “Without the commitment of each and every person who gives to LLS, we would not be able to invest in the research that is changing the quality of life for people living with cancer.”

The Light The Night Walk is a two-mile, non competitive event. Participants carry illuminated balloons while they walk—white for survivors, red for supporters and gold to remember those we have lost to blood cancer. The 2012 Light The Night Walk Presented by BP will take place on Saturday, October 20 and Sunday, October 21. Last year, participants in the Light The Night Walk raised more than $50 million nationwide, and nearly $2 million in Illinois.
