The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society is an organization Shea Homes® Arizona holds close to our hearts and this past weekend our family, friends, and co-workers gathered to celebrate and honor those touched by blood cancer at the Light the Night Walk in Phoenix, Arizona.
Leading up to the walk, members of the Shea Homes Arizona team raised funds to help support blood cancer research, with the goal of finding a cure. With the help of friends and so many of our loved ones, we raised over $11,500, surpassing our fundraising goal of $10,000 benefitting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
Throughout the walk, survivors held up white lanterns, yellow lanterns were held high in memory of a loved one, while supporters of the cause held up red lanterns. This event is joined by over 1 million people across the United States and Canada in 200 inspirational evening walks annually and this year in Phoenix, there were over 7,000 registered walkers.
