Light The Night Walk: Taking Steps Toward CuresTM

Each year, in communities across Canada, teams or families, friends, co-workers and local and national corporations come together to raise funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada’s (LLSC’s) Light The Night Walk events and bring help and hope to people battling blood cancers.

Funds raised by teams and individual walkers provide:

  • Lifesaving blood cancer research
  • Free educational materials and events for patients and their families
  • Local programs such as Family Support Groups and First Connection,
  • a peer-to-peer counseling program

  • Comprehensive, personalized assistance through our Information Resource Centre

Light The Night Walk events are evenings filled with inspiration. During this leisurely walk, walkers carry illuminated balloons – white for survivors, red for supporters and gold in memory of loved ones lost to cancer – thousands of walkers – men, women and children – form a community of caring, bringing light to the dark world of cancer.

We are taking steps to cure cancer! Join us!

Registration for the 2012 walks will open in February.
