Thank you to our top 2013 Corporate and Friends & Family teams!




Washington Gas is one of our most tenured teams. In the 14 years they have been walking with LTN, more than 1,500 employees have walked down Pennsylvania Ave to celebrate and commemorate lives touched by blood cancer. They know how to put the TEAM into teamwork and the FUN into fundraising. Their golf events, fish fries and car washes are executed to perfection and the events keenly anticipated by their colleagues and vendors. This year they shattered an NCA fundraising record, raised more than $100,000 in one year!

Young Hearts

The Young Hearts are an inspiration to our Light The Night family.  Walking since 2000, the Young Hearts have raised nearl half a million dollars for our mission. Even with homework, finals, extracurriculars and everything else that goes into being a student, the Young Hearts truly go above and beyond and spend all year raising money for LLS. 


Thank You from our Walk Chairs!
