What is Light The Night ?
Light The Night, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) annual fundraising walk held in communities throughout the country, features teams of co-workers, families and friends walking together in twilight holding illuminated balloons – white for survivors, red for supporters and gold to remember those who have died. The Walk, which commemorates lives touched by blood cancers, is a celebration, with music, refreshments and family activities.
Where are these walks taking place?
There will be three walks this coming October. Our first walk will be in San Mateo on October 1st, our second in Palo Alto on October 15th, and our third in San Jose on October 22nd. Teams are signing up now for these family-friendly events. For more information, check out the website.
