Texas electricity utility Gexa Energy will sponsor this year’s Houston Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) Light The Night Walk. The 2017 fundraising event is set to take place Oct. 28 at Minute Maid Park.
LLS, is the world’s largest voluntary health agency dedicated to blood cancer. Its yearly Light The Night Walk event attracts thousands of partners, sponsors and corporate teams across the United States to help raise funds for potentially lifesaving research initiatives and support programs for people fighting blood cancer. This fall, these teams and their communities gather to celebrate, honor and remember those touched by cancer.
Gexa President Brian Landrum, who is chairing the event, will seek funding from other large companies to help finance LLS’s mission of creating a world free of blood cancer.
“It is an honor to be a part of this year’s Light The Night Walk and to partner with this amazing organization that makes such a meaningful impact on the lives of others,” Landrum said in a recent news release. “Leukemia and lymphoma have personally touched the lives of several Gexa Energy employees, and we are proud that we can help the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society continue its fight against these deadly diseases.”
