The Light The Night Walks are evening fundraising walks to celebrate and commemorate lives touched by cancer. Local Light The Night Walks will take place on September 22 in Palo Alto, October 20 in San Jose and October 27 in San Mateo. Light The Night Walk events are evenings filled with inspiration. During these leisurely 2-mile walks, teams and individual walkers carry illuminated balloons - white for survivors, red for supporters and gold in memory of loved ones lost to cancer ? and form a community of caring, bringing light to the dark world of cancer.
