Event Description

August 29, 2014 Updated Aug 29, 2014 at 11:29 AM EDT

Join us for the 16th annual Light The Night Walk.

Teams/individuals sign up and raise funds in advance of the Walk. The goal is to have each team member raise a minimum of $100 to become a “Champion for Cures.” This year’s fundraising goal is $500,000.

On walk night, participants carry illuminated lanterns along a two-mile course – red lanterns for supporters, white for cancer patients and survivors, and gold in memory of loved ones lost to blood cancer.

Money raised through the event is spent locally to help fund research projects throughout the region and provide vital patient aid and services to more than 5,000 local patients.

The event includes food and refreshments, live music, games and other family festivities.
