Light the Night - Avaya Stadium

FEATURE: Silicon Valley Light The Night comes to Avaya Stadium Saturday

Silicon Valley Light The Night  ●  Avaya Stadium  ●  1123 Coleman Ave San Jose CA  ●  Saturday, October 14

At Light The Night, it is our aim to bring light to the darkness of cancer through research and cures. Light The Night is a series of fundraising campaigns benefiting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) funding of research to find blood cancer cures. We bring hope instead of despair by working to ensure access to treatments for all blood cancer patients. We bring communities together to celebrate those who are fighting the disease and to honor those we have lost. When we walk, cancer runs.

Remembrance Pavilion

We encourage all participants to join us at the Remembrance Pavilion, which will be open to everyone during all hours of the event (except during the Opening Ceremony). The pavilion is a multimedia experience where you will be able to spend some quiet moments thinking about those we’ve lost but also connect with your fellow participants in a powerful way. Be sure to bring photos of anyone you’d like to honor to place on our Remembrance Boards and we will provide markers and paper for you to leave messages of hope and remembrance.
