LEUKEMIA AND LYMPHOMA SOCIETY “LIGHT THE NIGHT” EVENT TO TAKE PLACE NOVEMBER 3 IN DOWNTOWN MIAMI
6:00 PM-9:30 PM
Light the Night, a nation-wide fundraising event, will host more than 5,000 people, including corporate and family teams, who have been touched by cancer for an emotional and uplifting evening that aims to shine light on one of life’s darkest moments. Together they join a massive cancer community of approximately 1 million people at 150 inspirational evening walks across the U.S. and Canada to end cancer.
Survivors celebrate by carrying white lanterns and taking part in an inspiring survivor ceremony within the survivor circle as a white beam of hope reaches up to the sky, illuminating the darkness. A Remembrance Pavilion honors those who have passed and allows a quiet place where family, friends and co-workers can leave tributes to their loved ones. Red lanterns are displayed for supporters, while gold lanterns represent those in memory.
The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society is the world’s largest voluntary health organization dedicated to fighting blood cancer.
The walk aims to shine light on one of life’s darkest moments while raising important funds for critical blood cancer research and to improve the quality of life of cancer patients and their families through support services and free information.
