Light the Night Walk, a charity walk and fundraiser hosted yearly by The Leukemia & Lymphona Society, is looking for those interested in organizing Friends and Family Walk Teams and Corporate Light The Night Walk Teams, selling paper balloon icons in retail stores, providing in-kind donations and sponsorships.

Friends and Family Walk Teams
Participating in the Light The Night Walk is a wonderful, positive and inspirational way to support or remember a family member or friend who was diagnosed with a blood cancer. Teams raise money to help fund research and patient services, and they celebrate and commemorate lives touched by cancer.

Corporate Teams
Companies in the community that form a Light The Night Walk Team give employees valuable leadership experience in working towards a common goal. Team efforts will build morale and strengthen business ties to the community.

Balloon sales
Selling paper balloon icons is an easy way for retailers to partner with customers in the community in the battle against cancer. With no cost to the retailer, the colorful balloons make a great visual display to show everyone how much local businesses care about their community.

Financial contributions made in a company's name give the broadest exposure and provide valuable access to our audiences. A range of levels are available (starting as low as $500), from national presenting sponsor to local site sponsor.

In-kind donations
Local businesses can contribute products or services to Light The Night and enjoy valuable exposure to potential clients. Light The Night welcomes donations of food, beverages, family friendly product samples, merchandise for prizes, entertainment and printing services.

To be a Champion For Cures, register today and raise $100 or more. "Champions" will be recognized on Walk Night with a Light The Night t-shirt, an illuminated Light The Night balloon in red (supporters), white (survivors) or gold (in memory of a loved one) and wristband which entitles the wearer to an array of food and refreshments

By registering and raising $100 by May 31, participants can earn free movie tickets. Every $100 raised during the promotion period will earn them one free Fandango promo code good towards one free movie ticket at participating theaters. Funds may be raised online or offline, and there is no limit to the number of passes any walker can earn; but funds must be submitted by May 31 to qualify.

Those who are interested may contact Breeana Garrett at (310) 846-4731 or for more information and to receive an invitation to the 2010 Light The Night Recruitment Breakfast for May 26.

2010 Light The Night Walk will meet on Saturday, October 23 at Bridgeport Park, located at Newhall Ranch Road and McBean Parkway in Valencia.
