Light The Night Walk is a fundraising campaign of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) which brings together families and communities to honor blood cancer survivors, as well as those lost to the diseases, and shine a light on the importance of finding cures and providing access to treatments for blood cancer patients. Friends, families and co-workers form fundraising teams and come together to celebrate their efforts in this inspirational and memorable evening walk.

The funds raised by Light The Night participants will help advance more breakthrough therapies for blood cancer patients like targeted therapies that zero in on cancer cells and kill them. And immunotherapies that use a patients' own immune system to kill cancer.

The JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes has become JDRF One Walk™.*
We’ve changed the name of our flagship fundraising event to communicate our focus on a single goal—creating a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D).
With T1D there are no days off, and there is no cure. That’s why JDRF holds more than 200 Walks across the country. Each year, more than 900,000 people raise over $75 million for life-changing T1D research. Please register today for the Atlanta JDRF One Walk on October 18, 2014 at Centennial Olympic Park. http://www.walk.jdrf.org
