Light The Night® is a fundraising campaign benefiting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) funding of research to find blood cancer cures. Each fall, we bring communities together to celebrate those who are fighting the disease and to honor those we have lost. Friends, families and co-workers form teams to raise money in support of our mission. And, on the night of the event, each walker carries an iconic illuminated lantern to bring light to the darkness of cancer.
