Congratulations to Kyle’s Corner — Kyle Peterson’s family and friends raised more than $10,500 for this year’s walk — coming in as the top family/friend team!

The total raised for the Ann Arbor, Mich. walk last Saturday night was a whopping $104,000!

Those funds will be used to continue the effort to find cures for blood cancers. For more about the walk and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, go to: www.lightthenight.org

Congrats to Kyle’s Corner and everyone who participated! Whatta night! What an inspiring night!
