“Light the Night” in Boise

LTN 8On a brisk October night, a crew of our Boise employees participated in the Leukemia Lymphoma Society’s “Light the Night” walk to end blood cancer.  The event was held as the sun was setting, and walkers were given illuminated balloons in three colors; all with a different meaning. White balloons were carried by survivors, red balloons by supporters, gold balloons were carried by walkers who were walking in memory of loved ones who lost their battle with cancer.  As the day turned into night, our crew took a moment, looked around, and soaked up their surroundings. The stream of illuminated balloons helped them realize the true meaning behind the event.

At PacificSource, we had a committee that fund-raised for the LLC over the last couple months.  They offered casual week coupons (where our staff donate to the cause to ignore the dress code for a week), in-house raffles, and a bake sale. All told, they raised a little more than $1,500 for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society.

The Light the Night Walk was a great way to celebrate all of the fundraising efforts, but more importantly, it gave us the chance to walk in honor of the patients and survivors. We remembered those who lost their lives lost to cancer, and hoped that we will find blood cancer cures.
