About Light The Night
Light The Night is a series of fundraising campaigns benefiting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) funding of research to find blood cancer cures. We bring light the darkness of cancer by working to ensure access to treatments for all blood cancer patients. We bring communities together to celebrate those who are fighting the disease and to honor those we have lost.
We will Light The Night. We will bring light to the darkness of cancer by honoring and remembering those touched by cancer and by rallying as a community in support of LLS's mission.
Blood cancer patients need us now more than ever. As you can imagine, Fall 2020 will look different as we prioritize the safety of our patients, volunteers, and supporters. With these priorities in mind, we are excited to announce the 2020 Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Greater Chicago Light The Night will be held as a virtual experience. With this change, our date has shifted slightly and our new date will be Thursday, October 15th. We will be combining all of our Greater Chicago Walks into one virtual experience that will take place from 7 - 8 PM. This experience will include:
• Inspiring Mission Ceremony
• Survivor Circle – A special engagement for all cancer survivors and patients.
• Remembrance Pavilion – An opportunity to remember and pay tribute to those we’ve lost to cancer.
• Many Interactive Activities for Participants – Photo booth, words of hope, and augmented reality features for Light The Night’s signature lanterns and t-shirts.
• And So Much More
