The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s “Light the Night” Walk will take place Friday night at Reston Town Center. Event festivities will start at 5 p.m., with the 1.5-mile walk to go off at 7.

Light the Night walks are organized to raise funds in support of the mission of the LLS, which is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

According to the LLS:

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Light the Night Walk funds treatments that are saving the lives of patients today. LLS is making cures happen by providing patient support services, advocating for lifesaving treatments and pioneering the most promising cancer research anywhere. And it’s all happening now. Not someday, but today. Each year friends, families and coworkers form teams to raise money in support of our mission.

Residents interested in participating in the event can do so by registering to walk, donate to a team or individual, sponsoring, volunteering or just coming out to show their support.

Friday’s event in Reston is one of three scheduled for the National Capital region. Others will be Saturday in Rockville and Saturday, Oct. 21 on the National Mall in DC. It is one of about 150 events scheduled across the United States and Canada.
