Event Description

April 10, 2013 Updated Jun 24, 2013 at 11:03 AM EDT

Each year, in communities all across the United States and Canada teams of families, friends, co-workers and local and National corporations come together to raise funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS's) Light The Night Walk events and bring help and hope to people battling blood cancers.

Light The Night Walk events are evenings filled with inspiration. During this leisurely walk, walkers carry illuminated balloons - white for survivors, red for supporters and gold in memory of loved ones lost to cancer. Thousands of walkers - men, women and children - form a community of caring, bringing light to the dark world of cancer.

Every Light The Night walker is encouraged to become a Champion For Cures by raising $100 or more to help fight blood cancer. Funds raised by teams and individual walkers provide:

-Lifesaving blood cancer research
-Free educational materials and events for patients and their families
-Local programs such as Family Support Groups and First Connection, a peer-to-peer counseling program
-Comprehensive, personalized assistance through our Information Resource Center.
