Fundraise Your Way is the Lymphoma Research Foundation’s (LRF) volunteer and community fundraising program, under the Foundations' Team LRF brach. Each year, thousands of volunteers across the country turn their talents and interests into unique fundraising events to support LRF's mission of eradicating lymphoma and serving all those impacted by this blood cancer. Fundraisers can range anywhere from social events such as bake sales and parties, to endurance events like bike rides and marathons.
