About Light The Night

Light The Night happens in 150 communities across the country. Family, friends and co-workers gather together to celebrate, honor or remember those touched by cancer. Registration is free but walkers are encouraged to raise funds to support the mission. All participants carry illuminated lanterns in one of three colors: red lanterns are carried by supporters, white lanterns are carried by survivors, and gold lanterns are carried by those walking in memory of a loved one. It’s an inspiring event and a great show of community support for those effected by cancer. Participants walk as individuals or as teams and corporations can get involved as a team or a sponsor.

In Harrisburg, Light The Night takes place on the block of State Street between the Capital Building and the Susquehanna River (2nd Street & 3rd Street). The walk route is approximately 1.5 miles around the Capitol Complex. 

Please contact the Central PA Chapter at (717) 652-6520 with any questions!
