This is an annual event that really helps bring awareness and raises funds to help find a cure for this form of cancer. Leukemia has affected my family personally and I know it has many of you reading this now. New York City has three sites and dates for the walk. I’ve done it a few times, it’s amazing. I took my daughter, we met friends and felt good about participating. Check out the dates and locations. This one is for a walk in Flushing Meadow Park. – R. Trionfo
Family, friends, and co-workers gather together to celebrate, honor or remember those touched by Leukemia or cancer. Registration is free, but walkers are encouraged to raise funds to support the mission.
At Light The Night, it is our aim to bring light to the darkness of cancer through research and cures. Light The Night is a series of fundraising campaigns benefiting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) funding of research to find blood cancer cures. We bring hope instead of despair by working to ensure access to treatments for all blood cancer patients. We bring communities together to celebrate those who are fighting the disease and to honor those we have lost.
Survivors celebrate by carrying white lanterns and taking part in an inspiring survivor ceremony within the survivor circle while the white beam of hope reaches up to the sky, illuminating the darkness.
Supporters participate in the walk with their families and friends, in celebration of survivors and the strides we are making to find cures.
Those we have lost are honored at the Remembrance Pavilion where family, friends, and co-workers can leave tributes to their loved ones.
