The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light The Night(R) Walk Offers Relief at

the Pump this Summer

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- High gas prices may be putting the brakes on Americans' summer travel plans, but The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is providing some relief by offering free gas cards and a chance to win an all-expense paid vacation.

Light The Night Walk participants doing online fundraising can earn $50 worth of free gas for every $500 they raise during July and August. For every $250 raised, $15 gas cards will be earned. The cards will be available while supplies last. As a bonus, the top online Light The Night fundraiser in July and August will win a special grand prize: a vacation for four at one of the luxurious Marriott Vacation Club International's Orlando Resort properties, including air transportation, courtesy of American Airlines.

"Light The Night Walk, LLS's annual evening fundraising walk, is the nation's opportunity to pay tribute and commemorate lives touched by blood cancer," said Nancy L. Klein, LLS's Chief Marketing and Revenue Officer. "The goal of finding cures and helping patients is a great motivator, in and of itself. But with gas prices so high this summer, LLS saw this 'Save at the Pump' promotion as a great added incentive to do something good and get something good!"

Light The Night Walk events take place in communities around the country in the fall, with teams of co-workers, families and friends walking together in twilight holding illuminated balloons -- white for survivors and red for supporters. Funds raised help LLS support cutting-edge research and provide critical patient services.
