LLS Lifestyle

In October 2017, we launched LLS Lifestyle, a new way to raise funds for LLS. This new peer-to-peer fundraising platform enables LLS supporters to get creative and start their own movement. With LLS Lifestyle, every activity or passion is an opportunity to fundraise for LLS – from bake sales and birthday parties to spin class challenges and video game tournaments. The options are limitless! This year, LLS Lifestyle participants took their creativity to new heights. Among the highlights: The Bob Ross Challenge inspired anyone with a paintbrush to raise funds for LLS in honor of the beloved painter, art instructor and television host, who passed away from lymphoma. Other campaigns included multi-day mountain bike rides across South Africa, birthday fundraisers and charitable wedding registries.

AmazonSmile has helped generate over $650,000 in donations to LLS since 2014, helping fund critical lifesaving research and patient support. When you shop using AmazonSmile, and select The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society as your designated charity, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to LLS. It might not sound like a lot but it really adds up across all of our supporters

USA BMX Race For Life

For 35 years, USA BMX (formerly the American Bicycle Association) has held Race For Life events throughout the country to raise more than $3.9 million for LLS.

BMX riders and tracks began the race in 1981 in memory of Todd Kingsbury, a young bicycle motocross rider from Michigan who lost his fight against leukemia. Since then, USA BMX has continued to support LLS in our mission to find cures for blood cancers.  BMX riders in Race for Life events can raise funds online to benefit LLS and earn additional points towards their standing in overall USA BMX race participation.

For more information, visit USA BMX or contact Marty Siederer, Senior Director, Campaign Development, at (914) 821-8954 or marty.siederer@lls.org.

See how one young BMX rider's battle against leukemia has inspired other BMX racers to support LLS’ mission.

Media Events

LLS partners with radio and television stations throughout the country to develop and support media events that provide awareness for our goal to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma.

Our partner stations provide an invaluable community service for their audiences and are recognized as leaders in supporting charitable causes.

To find out how your station can join the family of stations and media outlets supporting LLS, contact Pamela Edelstein, National Director, Media Fundraising Events, at (914) 821-8848 or Pamela.Edelstein@lls.org.
