I have money to turn in!
Great - we'll take it! Money can be dropped off or mailed to the LLS office at 6811 Shawnee Mission Pkwy., Suite 202, Shawnee Mission, KS 66202. **PLEASE note the team or individual walker the funds should be credited to.

I need to get my team's shirts and I'd like my lantern. How do I get them?

All walkers who raised $100+ qualify for a walk t-shirt and lantern. Shirts and lanterns can be picked up at the LLS office. If you are picking up a large order, please call ahead so we can be prepared for your arrival, (913-262-1515). Wichita walkers, we apologize if we ran out of your size on Walk night. Additional shirts have been ordered. Please call Wendy at (316) 266-4050 to redeem yours.

Will LLS be rescheduling the Kansas City Walk?

Unfortunately, we will not be able to reschedule an event of this caliber. If your team is planning on having a small walk of your own or celebration, please let us know. Call (913) 262-1515 to coordinate your t-shirts and lanterns, or if you'd like an LLS banner.

My team is going to do our own "mini" walk, can you help me promote it!?

Absolutely! Please share your walk on our Facebook page or email to an LTN staff member to post for you. PLEASE send us photos so we can share all the Light The Night love happening around Kansas City!

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light The Night Walk funds life saving research and support for people battling cancer. Friends, families, and co-workers form fundraising walk teams and millions of consumers help by donating at our retail partners. These efforts culminate in three inspirational, memorable evening walks where participants carry illuminated lanterns: white for survivors, red in support and gold in memory of a lost loved one.
