A Note from Emily Ehrnschwender

Just a reminder, the Light the Night Walk is LESS THAN TWO WEEKS AWAY!

The Light the Night Walk is Thursday, October 25th at 6:00pm at Circle Park on UT's Campus. 6:00 is when registration begins, but the ceremony does not start until 7:00 and the walk at 7:30, so please arrive any time between 6 and 7.

As of right now, the website says we've raised $2000. This is without the money we raised at the luncheon, which should bring our total to around $3250. Our goal is $5000, so we have a lot of fundraising to do!

Remember: Light the Night asks that everyone raise $100, and all it takes is sending out an email to friends and relatives or asking coworkers/classmates! If everyone does this, we will reach our goal in no time!

The best way to solicit donations is to send the link to your Light the Night webpage, which you can access by signing into your account. I signed each of you up online, and you should have received an email from Light the Night with your username and password. Simply asking friends, family, coworkers, teachers, and classmates for donations ALWAYS works. Online donations, cash and checks are accepted and checks should be made out to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

The link to our webpage is

Here are four easy steps to raising $100:
1. Donate $10 yourself
2. Collect $10 from a coworker/classmate/teacher
3. Collect $20 each from two family members
4. Collect $20 each from two family friends

If you send the link to your webpage out to 20 friends and 10 of them respond and donate $10 or more, you will have reached your goal!

Again, thank you so much for signing up for the walk and participating, but remember, the real reason we are walking is to raise money for the fight against cancer, so FUNDRAISE, FUNDRAISE, FUNDRAISE!
