About Light The Night



See more details below.

As a mission-driven health organization, the safety and well-being of blood cancer patients, their families, and the many staff, volunteers, donors, partners, and campaign participants who serve them is our top priority. With this in mind, we are taking special safety measures at our Light The Night events this Fall.  Here is what you can expect on site if you choose to Light The Night with us in person on November 6, 2021 at San Diego - Waterfront Park.  

Participants will be required to submit a quick wellness screening before picking up their lantern. The screening will be accessible at the event via your mobile device. We will also share the screening link one day pre-event via email. On site, we are asking all participants to sanitize, social distance and facial coverings are strongly recommended for all.  

In addition to our in-person event offering, San Diego Light The Night will also take place virtually on 11/10/2021 at 6-7 PM . We strongly advise patients, regardless of their vaccination status, to participate in our virtual event rather than attending in person. We also advise individuals who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19, including children under the age of 12, to participate virtually.  All registered participants will receive an email with instructions for joining our virtual Light The Night experience the week leading up to the event.  

Regardless of your chosen format, we will Light The Night and bring light to the darkness of cancer together!
