Light the Night Walk

I am extremely behind on blogging, it's getting out of control! And I have SO many things to blog about.. but that's my problem. I've been way too busy. I don't know why but this Fall, I've been running around nonstop, plus school has been getting kind of crazy too.. but I guess that's expected. Anyway.. on to the blogging!

On October 2nd, I participated in the "Light the Night" walk for Leukemia & Lymphoma, walking in honor of my friend, Jessica, who passed away at the age of 20 from Lymphoma in December of 2009.

I knew Jessica since we were in grade school together and then we went on to go to the same high school and college.

I was honored to be able to walk in her honor, along with a group of her friends and family.

The walk took place at Progressive Field in downtown Cleveland. It started off a little rainy, but luckily it pretty much cleared up in time for the actual walk to start. We walked a mile around the streets of downtown, everyone with an illuminated balloon. It was really inspiring and I'm really glad that I took part in it.

With the help of my family and friends, I was able to raise $193 alone, and all together, our team raised a total of $1,210. The money will help fund lifesaving cancer research and services for patients, bringing help and hope to thousands of people battling blood cancers.
