It’s about Community:
Coming together for a common goal, friends, families and co-workers form fundraising walk teams. Millions of consumers also help by donating at retail outlets. Culminating in inspirational and memorable evening walks every fall, participants in nearly 200 communities across North America join together carrying illuminated lanterns to take steps to end cancer.

It’s about Funding Research:
Nationally, Light The Night participants raise an average of $250. Raise $1,000 or more to become a member of their Bright Lights Club. Together, Bright Lights Club members raised more than $17.2 million last year in support of their mission.
