Registration Week is August 5-11. If you are registered by the end of the week, you will be entered in a raffle for one of five $25 Amazon.com gift cards. If you captain a team, there are extra prizes for you: Team Captains of the four largest teams (including old and new walkers) will each receive a $100 gift card, and all Team Captains will be entered in a drawing for a $25 AmEx card.
If you walked last year, your team is already in the walk system. All you need to do is join. If you didn’t walk last year, you can join an existing team in your area; LLS has already set up teams at every walk site in the US and Canada (for your convenience, see this list organized by state). You can also form a new team by following this guide. Please encourage your friends, family, and fellow freethinkers to join us in the fight against cancer!
Your efforts will provide lifesaving blood cancer research, free educational materials, and patient support services, such as Family Support Groups. More than 1,000,000 people in the United States are currently living with or are in remission from leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease, or myeloma. To date, LLS has invested more than $875 million in research aimed at treating and curing blood cancer, with $70 million in 2012 alone.
