The Light The Night Walk is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's annual fundraising walk and the nation's way to pay tribute to those battling blood cancer. Participants walk along a two - to - three mile route carrying illuminated lanterns: red for supporters, white for survivors and gold lanterns for those walking in memory of loved ones lost. Join us this fall as we walk to support groundbreaking research, patient services and advocacy efforts.
