About

The Light The Night Walk is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's annual fundraising walk and the nation's night to pay tribute and bring help and hope to millions of people touched by cancer. Participants walk a roughly 2 mile route carrying illuminated lanterns: red for supporters, white for survivors and gold lanterns for those walking in memory of loved ones lost.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light The Night Walk funds lifesaving research and support for people battling cancer. 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 over two hundred communities each fall across North America.

Volunteers are critical to the success of this event! This event is ideal for groups or individuals in need of community service hours. There are a limited number of volunteer positions, and they are given on a first come first serve basis. To ensure your volunteer please REGISTER!
