The Reston, VA-based CPA and consulting firm of Ryan, Sharkey & Crutchfield, LLP (RSC) recently joined the fight against blood cancer by raising funds for and participating in the Light the Night Walk for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).
The Light the Night Walk is the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s evening walk and fundraising event. It is the nation’s night to pay tribute and bring hope to thousands of people battling blood cancers and to commemorate loved ones lost.
Team RSC raised a total of $5,031 for the walk, eclipsing its original goal of $4,000 by nearly 26%. The walk was held at the Reston Town Center on Saturday, October 3rd at 7:00 pm. Participants walked approximately 2.8 miles.
“We are very proud of our contribution and thankful to our friends and clients who teamed with us in this effort,” said Edward Ryan, Managing Partner of RSC. “This event reminds us that if everyone continues to join together, we can beat this devastating disease.”
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) funds lifesaving research that has contributed to major advances in the treatment of blood cancers and treatments for other types of cancer, such as chemotherapy and stem cell transplants. These treatments have helped patients live better, longer lives. New targeted therapies that kill cancer cells without harming normal tissue are providing drugs and procedures that are improving quality of life.
“I am very proud of our team for the hard work we put in to raise funds,” stated Susie Brick, captain of Team RSC. “We held several in-house campaigns to bring in money, but the primary source was our team’s dedication to make calls for contributions.”
