Light the Night and Walk for Cures

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Light The Night Walk is an annual event to raise funds for cures. It’s the nation’s night to pay tribute and bring hope to thousands of patients and their families.

Funds raised through Light The Night Walk support the work of hundreds of the world’s best and brightest researchers in their search for better therapies and cures for leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma.

Anyone can take part—children, adults and seniors are all welcome. This is a casual Walk with no fitness requirements.

Why walk?

Now in it's 10th year, Light The Night is celebrating a Decade of Difference. During this time:

• Nearly half a million patients and their caretakers have called the LLS Information Resource Center and received critical information about blood cancers, therapy options and issues surrounding treatment and survival.

• Nearly $40 million was disbursed to patients through the LLS Patient Assistance program to help them get the treatment they needed to fight their cancer. • Over 100,000 patients and family members found comfort and hope through LLS First Connection and Family Support Groups.

• $425 million was given to more than 400 scientists searching for cures and improved treatments for patients.
