Q: What happened to the balloons?
A: Due to a national helium shortage, we have switched to paper lanterns. The colors and their meanings remain the same: red for supporters, white for survivors and gold for those who walk in memory. One great thing about the lanters is that they are reusable. More for the mission!

Q: Is there a fundraising minimum?
No, there is not a fundraising minimum to participate in the walk. We encourage all participants to beat the national average of $240. Be a Champion For Cures by raising over $100 and earn a 2015 Light The Night t-shirt. 

Q: How do I turn in cash and checks?
The easiest way to accept/deposit a check donation is by using the new MyLLS smartphone app, which you can download here. The app's cutting-edge features include the ability to accept and immediately process donations via credit card and check, and social media integration.

Checks can also be mailed to the LLS office. Be sure to include the name of the participant to whom the donation should be credited to. Please do not mail cash. Cash should be turned into a money order and mailed, or delivered in person to the LLS office or at Light The Night.
