Light the Night
About Light the Night...
We're once again partnering with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) to raise funds for Blood Cancer Research and Patient support services. Our school has partnered with LLS to take on the mission of ending Cancer once and for all.
Join us in bringing light to the darkness of cancer! By giving a donation today, you can help children like Cayden. At just 3 years old, Cayden was diagnosed with a high-risk form of blood cancer, Philadelphia chromosome-positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia. While Cayden’s uphill battle with cancer is not over, his family has found a strong support system at LLS, after a friend encouraged them to sign up for Light The Night last year. Cayden is currently in the interim maintenance phase of his treatment and even when he is dealing with the harsh side effects of his treatment, he continues to smile and remains his playful loving self. Funds raised through Light The Night allow LLS to fund treatments for patients who are suffering from all forms of blood cancers. In 2020, LLS helped advance 14 of the 17 approved blood cancer treatment options approved by the FDA. Beating cancer is in our blood. Help defeat the darkness of cancer. Please make a donation today to continue to help patients and their families across the country!
BCDS walk to "Light the Night"
This year out students will be able to participate in our school wide "Light the Night" walk at our school. Each parent can pledge $10 for their child to participate in the walk. Feel free to donate a larger amount if you choose.
Log into the Bethesda Country Day School Giving page by clicking below, and donate $10.00
Bring $10 cash payment to the school with your child name on the envelope labeled "Light the Night"
Bring check payable the LLS (Leukemia and Lymphoma Society) in the amount of $10. Please write your child name in the MEMO of the check.
Once pledges are received we will add your child's name to the Walk list. Each participant will receive a fun Glow accessory as well as create a fun lantern to use for the walk. Our Walk will be on March 25th, the last day of our fundraiser. More details about the time will soon follow.
How else can you help?
This year each classroom will be creating a special class plate. This item will be displayed in the hallway from March 14th through the 18th. You will be able to bid on this item. The highest bid will win the Class decorated plate. Each class plate was decorated with the children's finger prints! What a great keepsake to remember your child's preschool class! Good Luck!
You can also share our School Giving Page with your friends and Family! Our Goal this year is to raise $3,500 for this cause.
The class who raises the most funds receives a Ledo's Pizza Party from LLS. We will also have a special treat for all the children for participating.
WE CAN DO IT!
