It's all about team work for Light The Night Walks

Corporate and Friends & Family teams raise funds and walk in their communities carrying illuminated lanterns - white for survivors, red for supporters, and gold in memory of a life lost. Many teams also carry banners that provide an opportunity to display a name, photograph or message, honoring or commemorating a family member, friend or coworker with cancer.


Friends & Family National Team

Family teams are the core of our Light The Night Walk! Nationwide, teams are comprised of family members and friends as they walk to celebrate, honor or remember their loved ones touched by blood cancer. Every team has their own story but each shares the same goal - walk to end cancer.

If you have family and friends across the country who would like to walk on one team please click here. We look forward to walking with you!

Large and small companies, businesses and organizations form teams and walk with us each year. Light The Night is also an opportunity for a company or organization to:

  • Enhance employee morale
  • Encourage teamwork
  • Gain visibility for its products or services
  • Generate goodwill in the community

Team membership is not limited to employees of a company. Actually, team participation is encouraged among employees' families, friends and neighbors. Light The Night Walks are a wholesome event that brings co-workers and their families together outside the office for the purpose of helping others.

It's simple to organize a team and become a Team Captain. We provide all the materials and guidelines to ensure your success in building a Light The Night team. Corporate donations are encouraged and will be gratefully acknowledged. The majority of contributions will be generated by the fundraising efforts of your individual team members. Additionally, corporate matching gifts can enhance employee fundraising efforts.

Does your company offer a matching gift program?
