An Honored Hero is anyone who has been affected by a blood cancer. As an Honored Hero/Family your story of strength and courage will be shared with participants and donors to provide motivation and encouragement to their money-raising efforts.
I would like more information
LLS relies on fundraising campaigns to support our mission activities. Are you interested in finding out more about fundraising opportunities or volunteering at our fundraising events?
I am interested in more information about volunteering and/or fundraising for:
Light the Night: Every fall, friends, families, and co-workers form fundraising walk teams to participate in an inspirational and memorable evening. Walkers carry illuminated lanterns on a 1 - 2 mile walk.
Man & Woman of the Year: A spirited fundraising competition in which participants build fundraising teams to compete for the title of Man or Woman of the Year. This ten-week campaign culminates in a grand finale in which the man and woman in each community who raises the most funds are named Man and Woman of the Year.
Student of the Year: High school students participate in a six-week fundraising competition to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Candidates raise money in honor of a teen patient hero who is currently battling or is in remission from a blood cancer. The candidate who raises the most money at the end of the six weeks is named the Student of the Year.
Team in Training: The flagship fundraising program for LLS and the only endurance sports training program for charity that raises money for blood cancer research. Our coaches will train you to cross the finish line at a marathon, half marathon, cycling event, triathlon or hike adventure.
Student Series: A service learning, character education and philanthropy program where students gain the unique experience of helping thousands of children and adults in their fight against blood cancers like leukemia. The core program consists of collecting money over a three-week period.
Other campaign events that may be available in your chapter.
