Mid-Michigan Light The Night
September 23, 2017 @ 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Light The Night is an inspirational community event, raising awareness about blood cancer and raising funds for groundbreaking research and treatment options. The light and warmth we generate delivers hope in time of despair, community in place of loneliness and life-saving RESEARCH & SUPPORT for cancer patients and their families.
Participants walk along a one-mile route in their communities; festivities are centered at the Midland Farmer’s Market. Those who raise $100 or more are called “Champions for Cures,” and carry illuminated lanterns—white for survivors, red for supporters and gold balloons in memory of loved ones lost. Dedication banners and remembrance ceremonies provide an opportunity to display a name or message, honoring or commemorating a family member or friend with cancer. Our opening ceremony will honor survivors, and will feature presentations by our Honored Hero, Rachel Cull, herself a survivor of blood cancer.
