Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

At the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, we are taking steps to end cancer. Literally.

On Oct. 17, our Light The Night Walk is holding a fundraising campaign benefiting LLS and the funding of research to find blood cancer cures.

It’s About Community: Coming together for a common goal, friends, families, and co-workers form fundraising walk teams. Millions of consumers also help by donating at retail outlets. Culminating in inspirational and memorable evening walks every fall, participants in nearly 200 communities across North America join together carrying illuminated lanterns to take steps to end cancer.

It’s About Funding Research: Nationally, Light The Night Walk participants raise an average of $250. Raise $1,000 or more to become a member of our Bright Lights Club. Together, Bright Lights Club members raised more than $18.8 million last year in support of our mission. Join the club that is funding cures today and you will receive special recognition!

Why Walk? It’s inspirational and fun. And you’ll make a real impact on the lives of blood-cancer patients.

Walkers raise funds in honor of patients like Joseph. Click here to find out more about Joseph’s inspirational story.

Since it was founded in 1949, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society has worked to find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood-cancer patients. Breakthroughs like targeted therapies that zero in on cancer cells and kill them, and immunotherapy drugs that use a patient’s own immune system to kill cancer, are examples of LLS-supported advancements that have been saving thousands of lives.

Light The Night Walk is a community celebration of music, entertainment, and camaraderie among friends, family, and co-workers gathering to celebrate their fundraising success and demonstrate their support in the fight against blood cancers.
