Burlington, LLS Join Forces for 12th Straight Year


The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) has already begun its annual back-to-school fundraiser through one of the organization's biggest corporate partners, Burlington Coat Factory.

Through Oct. 19, Burlington customers can purchase a paper balloon at checkout for a minimum donation of $1 – with all proceeds going to the LLS to benefit blood cancer patients.

Customers then join in on one of almost 200 evening walks nationwide devoted to the "Light the Night" campaign carrying one of those balloons. "Light the Night" has been an incredible boost in the fight against blood cancers, helping the LLS to invest more than $875 million towards research to discover and deliver breakthrough cancer treatments that are saving lives today.

This will be the 12th consecutive year that Burlington will serve as the number one National Corporate Partner and Honored Friend of the "Light the Night" Campaign. Over the previous 11 years, Burlington has contributed to the LLS mission by raising more than $16 million to help fund innovative cancer research and patient services.

Over the last year alone, more than 3 million Burlington customers donated to the LLS cause at more than 500 store locations.

As the world's largest voluntary health agency dedicated to curing blood cancer, the LLS is uniquely positioned to bring positive change to the cancer landscape, with their laser focus on cures and access to lifesaving treatments, and to improving the quality of life of patients and their families.
