Join Me to Help Light The Night For Kids with Cancer #LLSLTN

**Thanks to Light the Night for providing this important information. All opinions are my own.**

This fall,  let’s walk to the end of cancer by joining The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Light The Night Walk fundraising campaign, which brings together families and communities to honor blood cancer survivors, as well as those lost to the diseases, and to shine a light on finding cures and providing access to treatments for blood cancer patients.

One group that deserves our attention is children with cancer. Leukemia is the most common cancer in children and adolescents less than 20 years old. While extraordinary progress has been made in blood cancer treatments, the journey back to a healthy life can be a long one. For these kids, returning to school means additional challenges, including maintaining friendships to keeping up with schoolwork.
Here’s how we can do it:
This year, Sylvan Learning is partnering with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society through Light The Night, with a commitment to raise $250,000 and to donate more than 12,000 hours of free tutoring services in nearly 200 communities nationwide to help young blood cancer patients and their families with the transition back into academics. You can help them to achieve these goals:
There are nearly 200 Light the Night walks nationwide this fall. It’s easy to walk by registering and joining a team.
Learn more about how LLS and Sylvan are helping young cancer patients and their families manage.
Find a walk in your area, and join a Sylvan Learning walk team in supporting this great cause.


I’m going to join Light the Night with my family. Won’t you join us? Let’s all walk to the end of cancer and, at the same time, you can help kids get back into the swing of school, often while they are still undergoing treatment.


It's Fun

Light The Night Walk is a community celebration of music, entertainment and camaraderie among friends, family and co-workers gathering to celebrate their fundraising success and demonstrate their support in the fight against blood cancers.

Funds raised through The Light The Night Walk:


  • Fund breakthrough therapies for blood cancer patients.
  • Provides Free educational materials, support programs and events.
  • Powers advocacy to ensure access to treatments.
  • Helps provide personalized assistance through our Information Resource Center.
