The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Connecticut Westchester Hudson Valley Chapter will hold its Fairfield County Light The Night Walk Saturday, Oct. 29, at 5 p.m., at Harbor Point Commons Park, Stamford. Light The Night is a community event that raises awareness and funding for groundbreaking research and treatment options to eliminate cancer.

Approximately 1,500 people are expected to take part in The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Fairfield County Light The Night Walk. Teams of co-workers, families and friends will walk together in twilight holding illuminated lanterns — white for survivors, red for supporters, and gold for those walking in memory of a loved one lost to blood cancer. The evening’s events also include music, entertainment, family activities, and fireworks.
