11th Annual Light the Night Date Announced

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- On Friday, November 20th, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's, 11th Annual Light the Night Walk, will take place at Qualcomm Stadium in Mission Valley 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 stadium's concourse.

With over 3,000 people in attendance, last year's Walk raised more than $380,000. Through the money raised by this local walk and from those across the nation, San Diego researchers are awarded research grants to find solutions to this evergrowing epidemic. At the event there will be something for everyone including music, activities, booths, food and a kids zone. Check-In will be at 5:00 PM with the opening ceremony beginning at 6:00 PM and the Walk starting at 6:30 PM.

"This is truly a special event because it brings survivors, supporters and those who have lost love ones to cancer together to find a glimpse of faith and motivation during this dark time," says Jenna Korb, Executive Director. "It's amazing to see our community come together each year for this Walk. Many San Diego businesses get involved, put together teams and raise astonishing amounts during this night of fun and fundraising."

Past participating companies include Kohl's, Burlington Coat Factory, Cricket Communications, Biogen Idec, UCSD Moore's Cancer Center, Ruby's Diner, GEICO and many more. Tina Fey is the National Spokesperson for the 2009 Light the Night Walk.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is the world's largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education and patient services. Since LLS's founding 60 years ago, LLS has invested more than $600 million in research; nearly $71.4 million in fiscal year 2008 alone. Survival rates for blood cancers have increased 2-4 fold over the last 40 years. Nearly 1 million volunteers from all walks of life give generously of their time and talents to implement LLS's programs.

Volunteer and sponsor opportunities are available. For the opportunity to participate in the Walk please visit, or contact Kristin Sacco at, 858-277-1800.
