Join The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) at Napa Valley’s first ever Light The Night Walk on Saturday, September 28th at Veterans Memorial Park in downtown Napa!
The non-competitive two-mile walk route is accessible to all fitness levels and will take walkers through downtown Napa. LLS is bringing The Light The Night Walk to Napa Valley in an effort to broaden its reach to the North Bay area and make its services more accessible to patients and families throughout the entire Greater Bay Area!
Like all other Light The Night walks, there is no minimum for fundraising but participants who raise $100 or more will become a Champion for Cures! On walk night, all of our Champions for Cures will receive a t-shirt, dinner and a colored illuminated balloon – white if they’re a survivor, red if they’re a supporter and gold if they’re walking in memory of a loved one. All cancer survivors in attendance are our honored guests and will receive these items regardless of their fundraising level!
Additional Napa Valley event highlights include:
- Family friendly – strollers and wagons are welcome
- Live music from the popular Napa Valley band, the J Silverheels Band
- Dinner for the Champions for Cures from Downtown Joe’s Brewery and Restaurant
- A team photo area
- Kid-friendly activities including face painting, a balloon artist, a jumpy house and more
- Reflections of Life tent featuring stories of Honored and Remembered Heroes
- A Remembrance Ceremony facilitated by Napa Valley Hospice
LLS will also be recognizing the Napa Valley Honored Hero, Jared McDaniel! Jared is a courageous three year-old boy who is currently undergoing intensive chemotherapy for acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). Corporate sponsors for the walk include GD Nielson Construction, Biagi Bros., eWinery Solutions, Byron’s Autobody, Trinchero Family Estates, Foster Lumber Yards, The North Bay Business Journal, Napa Valley Life Magazine, St. Helena Martin-O’Neil Cancer Center, and 99.3 The Vine.
