Held throughout communities in the United States and Canada, Light The Night Walk is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s walk and fundraising event to pay tribute and bring hope to people battling cancer. Since its founding in 1949, LLS has invested more than $750 million in research specifically targeting leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma.
Funds raised through Light The Night Walk support the work of hundreds of the world’s researchers in their search for better therapies and cures for leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma. During this inspirational walk, participants carry illuminated balloons – white for survivors, red for supporters and gold in memory of loved ones lost to cancer.
We are proud to support Team Sharon 5 for 5, in memory of Sharon Schosberg, who lost her battle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia in 2005, as her daughter Samantha walks in her honor.
