Light The Night Walk: T-Shirt Design Finalist
Hundreds of thousands of people attend the Light The Night Walks in nearly 200 communities across the United States. While each of the Walk sites are unique in their own special way, some aspects of the campaign are the same from New York to Southern California. One of those is the t-shirt that is given to all Champions For Cures.
This year The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) challenged its participants and supporters to create a t-shirt for participants at every Light The Night to wear this Fall. The goal was to create a piece that is a representation of the spirit of Light The Night, the mission of LLS, and the drive to find a cure for blood cancers.
The graphic above was created by Alicia Parham, a tenth grader at Centennial High School in Frisco, TX. Alicia is one of two finalists, chosen from dozens of entries nationwide. The selection committee applauds her use of the lantern colors, the motivation of the various Walk participants, and the use of the LLS blood drop.
Alicia is familiar with LLS and the work it does. Her grandfather was diagnosed with multiple myeloma before he passed away.
