Team Reliance Trust joined the FIS national team in 2014 for its fifth consecutive year supporting the walk. The FIS national team set an overall goal of $100,000 and surpassed this goal for 2014 with team Reliance Trust raising more than $11,000 as part of the overall goal.
In 2013 the Reliance Trust team set a goal to raise at least $15,000 in its fourth year supporting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) annual Light the Night walk. The team went above and beyond raising $22,674.59!
The Light the Night Walk is the LLS’ annual evening walk and fundraising event. It is the nation’s night to pay tribute and bring hope to thousands of people battling blood cancers and to commemorate loved ones lost.
LLS funds lifesaving research and has contributed to major advances in the treatment of blood cancers and treatments for other types of cancer, such as chemotherapy and stem cell transplants. New targeted therapies that kill cancer cells without harming normal tissue are providing drugs and procedures that are improving quality of life.
