LLS Light the Night

Approximately 1 million people in the US and Canada walked in 150 LLS Light The Night events in November with the goal of ending cancer. Teams from corporations throughout Houston participated in the Gexa Energy-sponsored Light the Night Walk here. Manhattan Resources was one of those companies taking part.

The Manhattan Resources team raised more than $5,000 in the LLS Light The Night Walk in Houston, sponsored by Gexa Energy in November. According to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS), approximately one million people joined 150 inspirational evening events across the US and Canada, walking to end cancer. The money raised during the LLS Light the Night Walk funds treatments that save the lives of patients each day.

“Some participating corporate teams brought in more than $10,000,” said Manhattan Resources President Allison Piper. “It was very exciting. We are so happy to see what a success this LLS event is, even during a time when Houston is still recovering from Hurricane Harvey.”

LLS Light the Night is a Celebration that Honors and Remembers Those Touched by Cancer

The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society is making cures happen by providing patient support services and also advocating for lifesaving treatments. “LLS also pioneers the most promising cancer research anywhere. It’s all happening now — not someday, but today,” the organization reports on its website.

Family, friends, and co-workers gathered together at the annual event to celebrate, honor or remember those touched by cancer. The outcome is great networking with other LLS families, beneficial fund-raising, and a celebration of survivors, those who have passed on, and their loved ones.

Gexa Energy Sponsors the Houston LLS Light the Night

Gexa Energy sponsored the LLS Light the Night event in Downtown Houston and the company’s efforts resulted in significant fund-raising. The LLS Light the Night event featured a two-mile walk. Participants, called Champions for a Cure, enjoyed a pre-walk feast from Olive Garden. The event opened with a ceremony, including also many cancer survivors starting from the Survivors Circle.

After the LLS Light the Night walk, the Champions for a Cure participated in a cookie cake cutting, with cookie cakes donated by Great American Cookies. Then everyone in attendance was treated to a fireworks display.
