SAN DIEGO, Nov. 1, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- TriLink BioTechnologies (TriLink) today announced that they have formed a team that will participate in this fall's Light The Night® Walk, raising money to find cures for cancer and provide critical support to patients and their families. The TriLink Team has raised over $12,000 to date.
Light The Night® is LLS's annual walk held each fall in communities throughout the United States and Canada to pay tribute to those touched by cancer and to raise awareness and funds to support research and patient services. Teams of co-workers, families and friends walk together in twilight holding illuminated balloons – white for survivors, red for supporters and gold in memory of loved ones lost. This year, Walks will be held on November 5, 2010 at the Del Mar Fairgrounds.
"We are grateful to the companies and employees who are lending their support to this year's Walk," said Jenna Korb, Executive Director of the San Diego Chapter. "Their participation goes a long way toward bringing attention to the critical need to find cures and gives patients and their families hope for the future."
"The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light the Night® Walk was a perfect addition to our ongoing program to give back to the San Diego community. Our typical role in the effort to find cures for cancer involve supplying modified nucleic acid reagents for diagnostics and therapeutic research. We are happy to have the opportunity to support the important work of our customers in a different manner," stated TriLink CEO, Richard Hogrefe.
