Team CMB Lights the Night for Cancer Research with Annual BBQ + Auction

Posted by Catherine Shannon

Fri, Oct 05, 2018

When I was diagnosed with cancer, one of my friends told me, “Cancer is a team sport and you are taking one for the team.” It’s true, cancer is a team sport.

My team of family and friends supported me through my battle with cancer.

So did the team of doctors, nurses, radiologists, surgeons and many others who worked relentlessly to provide care.

Even my colleagues became teammates when they pledged to raise money for Light the Night to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society the year I was diagnosed.

Ten years later, even though I’m cancer-free, I’m still a member of this team. We all are. Since 2008, CMB has continued to support Light the Night through various fundraising events, like trivia nights, cornhole tournaments, and other fun events.

Earlier this week, we hosted our biggest fundraising event, the annual CMB Light the Night BBQ + Silent Auction.

Each year, Jared, CMB's Field Services Director by day, award-winning pitmaster by night, assembles an incredible barbecue menu while CMBers can peruse and bid on silent auction items.

Since 2008, CMB has raised over $100,000 for Light the Night!

Funds raised from Light the Night directly support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS)—the largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding research, finding cures and ensuring access to treatments for blood cancer patients. Many of the advances made in blood cancer research can be used to treat other types of cancer—broadening the impact of our fundraising efforts.

I learned the power of teamwork through my battle with cancer. My family, friends, colleagues, doctors, nurses, and many others stepped up to join the fight with me.

In a couple of weeks, our team will show up for the eleventh time and stand next to survivors, patients, advocates, and family and friends, at the annual Light the Night Walk in downtown Boston. It’s a powerful night of hope, love, and support as thousands of lanterns literally light the night sky as a single unit—a team.

If you’d like to join us in the fight against cancer and be someone else’s teammate, please consider donating to the CMB Light the Night team here or meet us on Wednesday, October 17th at 5PM on the Boston Common.

Catherine is CMB’s Director of Finance and a two-time cancer survivor who will be stepping up with her CMB teammates at Light the Night on October 17.

CMB Lights the Night for Cancer Research

Once again CMB is participating in Light the Night, a fundraising campaign for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, culminating in a walk on Boston Common on October 20th.  Our participation began back in 2008, when our coworker, Catherine, was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.  After two rounds of chemo, a stem cell transplant, and proton radiation therapy, I’m happy to report that she recently celebrated six years in remission!  

The money raised is used to fund research for new therapies and treatments (including those that saved Catherine) and ensure patient access to treatments.  Last year alone, LLS invested $67.2 million in blood cancer research.

Over the past 8 years, we’ve raised over $80K—not bad for a 65 person company!  LTN is truly a company-wide endeavor, we host bake sales, BBQs, silent auctions, and a very competitive cornhole tournament.  This year we've raised over $6K, and we're still going strong. We'd like to give a big thank you to all of our clients, partners, and friends who've donated!

If you’d like to join us in the fight against cancer, please donate here or meet us on Thursday October 20th at 5PM on the Boston Common.

That's not the only way to join the CMB team, whether you are an innovation guru, a tech whiz, or a strategic selling machine, we’re looking for collaborative, engaged professionals:
