Light the Night - Brooklyn Bridge, October 5th

The Brooklyn Bridge Light the Night Event, from the official website

Next Wednesday evening is the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's annual New York City "Light the Night" event. It is the organization's fundraising alternative for those who would prefer not to run 26.2 miles or bike 100 miles.

Since it will take place during the one week I should be feeling well, before I start the next round of chemotherapy, we've decided to make the fundraiser a family outing.

I don't have the energy to actively fundraise for this, and I have no desire to ask for more from those who've been so good to us, but if any local friends (families welcome!) want to walk with us, we would love the company.
