Carter’s My Plumber walked in the 2014 Indianapolis Light the Night event on October 12, 2014. This was the 9th year for the Carter Plumbing team to walk in this amazing event. Lisa Carter’s father, Roger Cole, passed away from Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML) in October 2004. This mission is close to Lisa’s heart to raise money to find a cure. Carter’s My Plumber was able to raise $4300 for the event and cause.
We are living in an extraordinary moment because the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is on the brink of incredible breakthroughs that have already begun to change the lives of thousands of patients; treatments that can manage a person’s condition with a daily pill, therapies that seek out cancer cells and kill them, and the use of a patient’s own immune system to eradicate cancer not someday, but today. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Light The Night Walk funds those treatments.
Lisa was part of the Executive Challenge Team this year. Local businesses competed in a team effort to raise funds for the Light the Night event. Each team set their own personal goal and competed weekly to meet that goal. Lisa’s team goal was $2500, and they were able to raise $4300. Her team came in 2nd overall! It was a rewarding experience to be part of something that is going the distance to wipe out cancer.
Here is a picture of our team who walked in memory of Roger Cole (AML), and Bill Kirkman (AML). They were close friends, and battled the same disease a few years apart. Their team also walked in honor of Joe Saba who is currently undergoing treatment at IU Med Center for AML.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
