Paul Street, chief administrative officer and general counsel at BMC, will be the corporate walk chairman for the 2013 Light The Night Walk fundraiser held by the Oregon, SW Washington, Idaho and Montana Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
As corporate chairman, Street will encourage businesses and corporations to get employees involved in the walk. At the walk, participants carry illuminated balloons to honor and commemorate lives touched by blood cancer. The Treasure Valley Walk is at 5 p.m. Oct. 3 at Ann Morrison Park.
Funds raised through corporate and individual contributions will help find cures and better therapies for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin disease and myeloma, and also provide information, education and support for patients and families.
