When we walk, cancer runs


Our 2013 San Francisco Light The Night Walk will be held at AT&T Park!

If you’ve ever experienced the amazing energy at one of our Light The Night walks, you know it has the power to make cancer run! This is no ordinary fundraising walk, it’s an incredibly special display of support and hope. And this year, there are no less than six walks in the Greater Bay Area.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s annual Light The Night walks are held in communities throughout the country. They feature teams of co-workers, families and friends walking together after dark holding illuminated balloons – white for survivors, red for supporters and gold to remember those who have died. The walk, which commemorates lives touched by blood cancers, is a celebration, with music, food and family activities.

Be sure to join us on one of these dates, either as an individual or form a team!

    It is too bad that this has been scheduled for the night before the San Francisco Nike Marathon which our Silicon ValleyTeam in Training has been working toward for so many months. I hope next year to be able to participate in the Light the Night as well as the marathon that we will be training for here in San Jose.

      Hi Phyllis,
      Thank you so much for your response! Fall is an incredibly busy time for LLS! Luckily, we have 6 opportunities to participate in a Light The Night Walk this year. Please join us at another date if you can: September 17th (San Francisco), September 28th (Napa), October 12th (Santa Rosa), October 26th (Walnut Creek) or November 2nd (Palo Alto).
      We appreciate your dedication to Team In Training and to our mission! Good luck at the Nike Women’s Marathon (Go Team!)
