WHAT IS LIGHT THE NIGHT?
Light The Night is the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s annual evening fundraising Walk to celebrate and commemorate lives touched by cancer. Every Fall, more than 200 communities across North America come together for this inspirational and memorable walk. In October, the National Capital Area Chapter of LLS hosts three Light The Night Walks: Reston, Rockville and Washington, DC. Friends, families and co-workers form fundraising teams and millions of consumers help by donating at retail outlets. These efforts fund lifesaving research and programs for people battling cancer.
WHY SHOULD I GET INVOLVED?
To support the mission of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, which is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. The walks are also a fun family-friendly event and a great way to bring friends, family and coworkers together around an important cause.
Anyone can get involved! In 2012, more than 10,000 people participated in the National Capital Area Light The Night Walks. Corporate sponsors, corporate teams and friends and family teams joined together to raise $2.24 million to support blood cancer research and benefit patient aid.
