Our Impact

Our impact in 2019/2020 thanks to your support

Together, we are making a difference in the lives of cancer patients. Read our latest Impact Report.

There was much to celebrate with with the success of our 2nd annual Be Happy 5K/10K 1K Run/Walk, thanks to the 2019/20 support of our wonderful donors, sponsors, runners, volunteers and LLF members. While the world has faced a challenging year with the emergence of the Covid-19 pandemic we are so proud that the community came together strategically and safely to participate in a live event in support of cancer patients and their families. Our Be Happy family of participants in conjunction with state and local health officials came together with each and every precaution necessary to make our live event a success and to keep our community safe.

You see, when we all work together 
we have the power to make a difference!
