The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) will host its signature community fundraising campaign, the Light The Night Walk, as a virtual event on Thursday, November 12, for the Fort Lauderdale area. The Light The Night walk will benefit LLS and their funding of lifesaving research to find blood cancer cures. Participants from across Fort Lauderdale can come together to create walk teams and carry illuminated lanterns to take steps to end cancer. The lantern colors are white for survivors, red for supporters, and gold in memory of loved ones lost to cancer.
The night will kick off with a welcome experience, followed by the Light The Night ceremony and walk. The evening will close with a social celebration and fireworks display.
“Light The Night’s virtual platform will be an interactive and engaging experience allowing LLS supporters and volunteers to enjoy the same iconic elements of Light The Night – illuminated lanterns, Circle of Survivors and the Remembrance Pavilion – in a different format but with the same passion to bring an end to blood cancers once and for all,” said DeAnn Hazey, CFRE, LLS executive director of the South Florida region. “Join us as, together, LLS will be the voice that speaks up, the hand that reaches out and the light that cures cancer.”
