In loving memory of Jared Hess (Jan 27 1978- Jan 25 2008): husband, father, son, brother, cousin, nephew, uncle, colleague, teammate, friend to so very many. It’s been nearly 4 years and I still have a hard time believing that it all happened the way it did. We move forward and we still remember.
The Light the Night walk is a way to do that: Remember. Move forward. Offer hope.
Please join a group of family and friends on October22nd, 2011 at Eakin’s Oval at the Philadelphia Art Musuem as we walk to remember and honor Jared’s life, his role in all of our lives and his bravery and grace throughout his struggle with leukemia. We walk in solidarity with all those whose lives have been touched by blood cancers. We raise funds so that many more people will have hope and a chance at survival. This year I, Anne, am mobilizing the Philly team and have set a goal for raising 3,000 for LLS. I genuinely hope that you will be able to walk with us and help me in meeting, even exceeding this fundraising goal. (As an aside, teams who raise $10,000 qualify for a personal team table and chairs!)
Light The Night Walk is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s annual fundraising walk to pay tribute and bring hope to people battling cancer. Hundreds of thousands of participants raise funds for lifesaving research and patient services.
Please visit the Team Jared Hess webpage and sign up to walk or donate to the team or both!
