MONROE COMMUNITY COLLEGE- BRIGHTON CAMPUS
Participants form teams of family, friends & coworkers who raise funds and gather together to "light the night" & bring hope to local blood cancer patients. Participants receive an illuminated balloon to carry during the Walk. A special white balloon identifies cancer survivors, all supporters carry red balloons, and gold balloons are carried in memory of a loved one.
Light The Night is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) international evening fundraising walk to celebrate & commemorate lives touched by cancer. Light The Night supports LLS's mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma, hodgkin's disease & myeloma and improve the quality of life for patients & their families.
