Employees raise $30,000 to assist those battling blood cancers
Topeka, Kansas, October 10, 2017 – Seven hundred forty five Advisors Excel team members, friends and family joined together in support of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Light The Night Walk on Sept. 16 at Hummer Sports Complex in Topeka. Light The Night Walk is an annual fundraiser for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) and with Advisors Excel’s pledge of $30,000, this year’s event raised more than $140,000 to fund lifesaving research and provide patient support services for people battling cancer.
“At our World Series of Sales event last January, the independent financial professionals we work with helped us raise $630,000 for LLS national,” said Advisors Excel Co-Founder Cody Foster. “As part of that event, we had the opportunity to participate in a Light The Night Walk and were really moved by the experience of seeing all of these lanterns illuminating the night sky in honor of blood cancer survivors, those still fighting disease and those who were lost to the disease. We were so inspired; we decided to commit ourselves to the local Light The Night Walk. ”
Fun employee events like dunk your boss dunk tank, a company-wide dodge ball tournament, shorts/jeans week and a multi-prize raffle helped Advisors Excel team members raise money and reach their pledge goal of $30,000 for the Light The Night Walk.
“All of us at the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society are so appreciative of the support of Advisors Excel in the fight against blood cancer,” said Carli Good, executive director Mid-America Chapter. “Together, we are funding research to find the cures and providing access to life saving treatments for patients. We could not do it without Advisors Excel’s support.”
The mission of LLS is: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. LLS exists to find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients.
