Happy Holidays from Light The Night!

Our three walks were powerful displays of hope, celebration, and remembrance. All of your hard work and fundraising efforts go toward supporting the many families that walked alongside us in the DC Metro Area and around the country. Because of you, we are closer than ever to cures. In this holiday season, please consider supporting Light The Night with a year-end gift. Click HERE to donate. $0.91 out of every dollar raised locally goes directly to our mission. Thank you!

Beating Cancer is in our Blood.

Our chapter is the top light the night walk in the country! Register today to help bring light to the darkness of cancer! 
When you or someone you love hears the words "you have cancer"…It's one of the darkest moments in your life.

The light and warmth we generate delivers hope in time of despair, community in place of loneliness, and life-saving RESEARCH & SUPPORT for cancer patients and their families.

We are taking steps to end cancer. WE LIGHT THE NIGHT.
