NBC Connecticut is pleased to connect you with an important Leukemia & Lymphoma Society event. The “Light the Night Walk” is an inspirational community event that raises awareness and funding for research and treatment options to eliminate blood cancer. Walkers carry illuminated lanterns to celebrate and remember those touched by cancer, in a very impactful scene. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society strives to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and focuses on quality of life issues for patients and their families.
In New Haven County, the Light the Night walk is Saturday, October 22, and will be emceed by NBC Connecticut’s own Justin Schecker on the New Haven Green. The Hartford County Light the Night Walk is Thursday, October 27 in Bushnell Park, and will culminate with fireworks (weather permitting) over the Capitol Building.
