The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light The Night Walk funds lifesaving research and support for people battling cancer. Friends, families and co-workers form fundraising teams and millions of consumers help by donating at retail outlets. These efforts culminate in inspirational, memorable evening walks in over two hundred communities each fall across North America. In 2012, LLS’ Light The Night Walk raised over $54 million nationally for research and patient services. Participants walk along a two- to three-mile route, carrying illuminated balloons — white for patients and survivors, red for supporters and gold in memory of loved ones lost.
