Join UC Alumni Nationwide As We ‘Light The Night’ to Fight Cancer

We learned as UC students that helping others is part of what Bearcats do.  It’s even better when we can do that together as alumni.  The upcoming Light the Night Walk for cancer is a great way to do both — an emotionally rewarding experience for everyone who joins the cause, and a tangible way to help others.  

This fall, the UC Alumni Association continues its partnership with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) by offering important this community service opportunity in 14 cities across the U.S.  The LLS stages “Light The Night” fundraising walks each year, and you can join teams of UC alumni united as “Champions for Cures” to fight blood cancer — leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma.

Helping LLS also strengthens UC.  This year, LLS will fund four cancer-fighting research grants at UC, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and Hoxworth Blood Center, totaling about $2 million over the life of the grants.
