On September, 29, 2014, Career and Technical Education Health Science students from Faulkner Career Technical Center volunteered and assembled hundreds of lanterns for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s largest annual fundraiser, “Light The Night Walk” scheduled to take place in downtown Mobile on 10/16/2014.
Light The Night Walk is a fundraising campaign of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) which brings together families and communities to honor blood cancer survivors, as well as those lost to the diseases, and shine a light on the importance of finding cures and providing access to treatments for blood cancer patients.
According to Ms. Jia Johnson, Health Science Instructor, each colored lantern represents a survivor, volunteer, or a loved one who has ended their battle with Cancer (white for survivors, red for supporters and gold in memory of loved ones lost to a blood cancer).
As part of the Health Science and HOSA leadership and community service activities, FCTC students volunteer and participate in this annual event.
