OHC-Sponsored Survivor Parade At “Light The Night” Walk A Big Success
OHC was a major sponsor again this year for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society “Light the Night” walk on Thurs., Oct. 15, at Sawyer Point. The annual event supports LLS’s mission to find a cure for blood cancer and to enhance the quality of life of those facing a blood cancer diagnosis.
OHC sponsored the first Tri-State Chapter Survivor Parade, where survivors wore bright red capes donned with the words SURVIVOR, OHC, and COURAGE. As they walked down a lantern-lit path under a sky filled with stars, survivors were cheered by over 6,000 attendees.
The event raised more than $600,000 to support the mission to find a cure for blood cancer.
Thank you to all the OHC employees, patients, families, and friends who participated and made this such a huge success. We hope you enjoy the photos from this inspiring event.
