Light The Night Walk:
Taking Steps To Cure CancerTM


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.


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


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.
