2016 “Light the Night” Walk Benefitting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Mid-America Chapter

On Friday, September 30, Waddell & Reed employees – along with family members and friends – gathered at Cleveland College in Overland Park, Kansas, for an evening of camaraderie, reflection and celebration. For yet another year, the annual “Light the Night” Walk brought together an extended family of people who consistently and selflessly contribute their time and finances to support the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Mid-America Chapter. And a successful year it was... 

Through the considerable efforts of our employees and those of our valued community partners, the Waddell & Reed team raised more than $63,000 for the 2016 “Light the Night” campaign. Since initially participating in the campaign in 2000, the company has raised in excess of $1 million for this important cause. What’s more, 2016 marked the 13th time in 16 years that Waddell & Reed has been the top fundraiser in the Kansas City area.
