Thousands of walkers will take to the streets of North Texas on October 20, 21 and 28 for the 2012 Light The Night Walks, to encourage and remember those that have battled blood cancer. The 2012 Light The Night Walks in Plano, October 20, Fort Worth, October 21 and Dallas, October 28, benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS)
and their mission to find a cure for blood cancer and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
Each walker will carry an illuminated balloon. Survivors carry a white balloon, supporters carry a red balloon and those walking in honor of a loved one that has lost their battle to a blood cancer will carry a gold balloon.
Check-in and pre-walk festivities begin at 5 p.m., followed by the program at 6:30 p.m., and the walk beginning at 7 p.m. Walkers can participate as an individual or team, and strollers, wheelchairs, children and seniors are welcome. All funds raised go to LLS. This year, the North Texas chapter has set a goal to raise $1 million.
