Light the Night Walk for leukemia research is Nov. 5

On Friday, Nov. 5, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s 12TH Annual Light the Night Walk will take place at the Del Mar Fairgrounds to raise money for those battling blood cancers. Carrying illuminated balloons — white for survivors, red for supporters and gold in memory of loved ones lost to cancer — thousands of walkers will come together to bring light to the dark world of cancer during this 2-mile walk around the fairground’s concourse.

The Walk, which commemorates lives touched by blood cancers, is a celebration, with music, refreshments and family activities. Check-in will be at 6 p.m. with the opening ceremony beginning at 7 p.m. and the Walk starting at 7:30 p.m.

For more information on the Walk visit, or contact Kristin Sacco at, (858) 277-1800.
