Keyvan Azami serves as head of fixed income derivatives trading technology with Bloomberg LP, a software and media company. Outside of work, Keyvan Azami participates in and supports the annual Light the Night Walk benefiting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
As a fundraising event, Light the Night raises money for blood cancer research and provides information and educational materials to patients.
Light the Night Walks take place all over the United States. They reach close to 200 different communities across the country, and each person raises an estimated $250. Participants who raise $1,000 or more become members of Light the Night’s Bright Lights Club. In a show of gratitude, Light the Night offers participants incentives depending on the amount they raised.
To participate, individuals can choose to be either a walker or a sponsor. As a walker, they raise funds, and then join the walk carrying a lighted lantern. Walkers can go alone or in a team. Those who choose not to walk can still support Light the Night by sponsoring a walker.
