WestRock, formerly RockTenn, has been supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and Light The Night since 2010. The company began their involvement and impact because of the diagnosis of an executive’s son and the company rallying behind the family in support. WestRock has continued to be a leader with 300+ participants and being a key sponsor with an overall contribution impact of $100,000 in the Atlanta area to help be an advocate and support the fight to end blood cancer. WestRock’s home office is in Norcross.
When you or someone you love hears the words “You have cancer…” It’s one of the darkest moments in your life. At Light The Night, the aim is to bring light to the darkness of cancer through research and cures. Light The Night is a series of fundraising campaigns benefiting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) funding of research to find blood cancer cures. WestRock’s team will participate to bring hope instead of despair by working to support LLS to ensure access to treatments for all blood cancer patients. The event’s aim is to bring communities together to celebrate those who are fighting the disease and to honor those we have lost. The Atlanta event takes place October 7 in Piedmont Park.
