Thousands of walkers will take to the streets of North Texas on October 20 (Fort Worth), 26 (Frisco) and 27 (Dallas) for the 2013 Light The Night Walks, to encourage and remember those that have battled blood cancer. Proceeds benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and their mission to find a cure for blood cancer and to improve
the quality of life of patients and their families.
Light The Night Walk events are evenings filled with inspiration, with each walker carrying a illuminated balloon of significant meaning. Survivors carry a white balloon, supporters carry a red balloon and those walking in honor of a loved one who has lost their battle to a blood cancer will carry a gold balloon. The evenings have a carnival atmosphere and include refreshments, entertainment, music and kids’ activities.
Check-in and pre-walk festivities begin at 5 p.m., with the program at 6:30 and the walk at 7. Walkers can participate as an individual or team. Strollers, wheelchairs, children and seniors are welcome to take part. Walk participants that raise $100 or more receive an illuminated balloon, an official T-shirt and a wristband for refreshments.
