Light The Night: Team Texas Oncology
The North Texas Light The Night Walks (LTN) are filled with inspiring teams, incredible stories and motivated fundraisers. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) feels that it is important to highlight some of the teams that made a real impact this year.
Texas Oncology Fort Worth is a longtime supporter of LLS, our patients and the Light The Night Walk. This year the 16-person team raised nearly $3,300 before and during the event for LLS and its goal to create a world without blood cancers.
Pattie and Lori, co-captains of Team Texas Oncology Fort Worth, answered a couple questions about their team and its motivation to participate.
Why did you create a team to participate in the 2014 Light The Night Walk?
To fundraise for a charity that gives directly back to the patients that we serve.
Tell us about your walk experience.
The walk was wonderful. It was perfect weather to take a walk through Trinity Park. What an awesome sight it was to see all the red, gold and white lanterns illuminating our way. It is truly something to see.
How did your company/employees benefit from this event?
All coming together for one purpose - to give back to our patients.
What was your favorite part/parts of the event?
Being able to interact with fellow employees and patients with their families outside of the clinic setting.
Team Texas Oncology Fort Worth was one of several medical facilities that participated in the 2014 Light The Night Walks that helped to raise more than $1.3 million in North Texas alone. Thank you to all who supported the event.
