This Year's Light the Night Walk

SOOOOOO it's October!! Yes, that means that baseball season is coming to it's end.... but it also means that it's time for the Light the Night Walk, benefiting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society!


Saturday, October 6th 
Raley Field
Tom will be an honored hero/volunteer which means we can all gawk and cheer him on!!!! YAY!  If you would like to sign up to be on our team and participate in the walk here or if you would like to help in fundraising for our team but won't be walking... please visit our Team Page and register!

Team Decimate

If you have a shirt from either the walk last year or from this year's fundraiser, please feel free to sport them!!! We won't be having any made.  If you don't have either of those, that's okay too... if it helps, the color for leukemia is orange!  You giants fans out there can sport some of your gear ;)

If you happen to not live in the area, but would love to take part in the walk.... here is the link to find a Light the Night Walk nearest you! (Thank you Corinne for asking that question.)

While I'm listed as the "team captain" this walk has totally been a Tom project.  As I mentioned previously, he's been volunteering for months in which he's been putting things together for this event, he's an honored hero (which apparently means he'll be presented with something), and it'd be fantastic to just see everyone and cheer him on!  This has already been a bit of a trying month, so let's try to make it awesome! Please share and spread the word!!!!

If you'd just like to donate, you can donate to the "team" as a whole (in which it will evenly disperse across team members as collected donations) or you can choose a specific team member.
Perhaps it's cheating a bit, but below are links to mine and Tom's personal fundraising pages.

Thank you again to everyone! You've all been so incredibly amazing, loving, supportive, and just more than we could ever ask for this last year!!! I'm hoping that we'll get to see a lot of faces this year!  Since we're only about ten minutes from Raley Field, maybe we'll host a get together again this year!!!

That's all for now! Please keep Tom in your prayers as beginning this week the medicine they had him stop should be out of his system and the effects of inducing graft vs. host should start.  They'll be keeping a "close" eye on him, but we'd appreciate good thoughts and lots of prayers.
