Eastern PA Chapter of Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) Announces The HEADstrong Foundation as Light The Night Presenting Sponsor

First Presenting Sponsor in Light The Night Philadelphia Walk's History

CONSHOHOCKEN, PA--(Marketwire - July 12, 2010) -  Light The Night, the signature fundraising Walk campaign for the Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), is pleased to announce its first Presenting Sponsor in Philadelphia Walk Light The Night history. The HEADstrong Foundation has partnered with Light The Night to contribute an impressive $50,000 towards the 2010 Philadelphia Walk campaign.

"We are both grateful and honored to have the support of The HEADstrong Foundation. With a first-time Presenting Sponsor, along with a new Walk site at The Art Museum, we are confident we will elevate Light The Night's exposure within the Philadelphia community," says Sarah Lindenmuth, Light The Night Campaign Director.

Cheryl Colleluori, President of The HEADstrong Foundation, expresses similar sentiments, "The HEADstrong Foundation is very proud to support the efforts of LLS in memory of Nick Colleluori. Our organizations have similar missions -- to cure blood cancers and improve the quality of life for patients and their families. The Colleluori family will continue to fight the disease that took our son and brother from us. This is one way for our family to stay connected to Nick with the hope that other families may be spared the anguish of this disease."
