Light The Night Walk is a fundraising campaign of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) which brings together families and communities to honor blood cancer survivors, as well as those lost to the diseases, and shine a light on the importance of finding cures and providing access to treatments for blood cancer patients.
Friends, families and co-workers form fundraising teams, and millions of consumers help by donating at retail outlets. These efforts culminate in inspirational, memorable evening walks in nearly 200 communities across North America each fall. During these evening leisurely walks, participants carry illuminated lanterns - white for survivors, red for supporters and gold in memory of loved ones lost to a blood cancer.
Funds raised through The Light The Night Walk:
- Fund breakthrough therapies for blood cancer patients.
- Provides Free educational materials, support programs and events.
- Powers advocacy to ensure access to treatments.
- Helps provide personalized assistance through our Information Resource Center.
