FBB Light the Night team incentive winners

19 Feb

LLS Light the Night WalkFoundation Beyond Belief became a special partner of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Light the Night program in 2012, and the 2012 walk season ended January 31. More than 150 local humanist groups came together to raise more than $430,000 for cancer research and patient outreach. Teams were eligible for fundraising awards courtesy of Stiefel Freethought Foundation. Congratulations to all of the walkers and teams!

A special thank you goes out to Steve Karasick and the rest of the members of Brent’s Brigade, who joined the FBB International Team after raising more than $10,000 for Light the Night. Says Steve, “Cancer is a devastating disease that doesn’t differentiate based upon age, gender, ethnicity, occupation, religious belief, or socioeconomic status. We believe that everyone can come together to face a common foe and unite around a common cause … and that everyone deserves to live a full, healthy life. We stand united with all others in the quest to cure cancer.” By broadening our coalition beyond the humanist community, you have underscored the good we can do when working together.
