Walkers light the night

September 23, 2005

Albany-- More than 500 walkers turned out at Riverfront Park Friday night to raise money for the thousands affected by leukemia and lymphoma.

At the "Light the Night" Walk, red balloons honored survivors while white ones honored those who lost their fight. Kelly Kuster's brother Stephen Forbes lost his battle to leukemia three years ago.

She and her team raised more than $6,000. "He was just a strong, loving person. He loved basketball, school, he just loved life period," says Kelly Kuster.

Coming into the walk, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society had raised about $20,000.
