LONG BRANCH, NJ – This fall, participants of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s 2014 Light The Night® Walk will rally their forces for the annual campaign in their Jersey Shore location! The event will take place on October 18th, starting at 5:00 pm at the Pier Village in Long Branch, New Jersey. We anticipate the opportunity to create a sense of community involvement in Long Branch!
Each year, in communities all across the United States and Canada, teams of families, friends, co-workers, and local and national corporations come together to raise funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS's) Light The Night® Walk events and bring help and hope to those battling blood cancers. Millions of consumers also help by donating at retail outlets. Light The Night Walk events are powerful, inspiration-filled evenings. During this leisurely walk, participants carry illuminated lanterns—white for survivors, red for supporters, and gold in memory of loved ones lost to cancer—and thousands of walkers form a community of caring, bringing light to the dark world of cancer.
Last year, more than $57 million was raised through Light The Night Walks in approximately 185 communities in North America. To form a team or to learn more, please call Stephanie Sims at 908-956-6634 or visit www.lightthenight.org/nj.
