Serving the Children of the World
Welcome to our Light The Night Walk home page. We're The Salem Kiwanis Club and community friends united in our fight against cancer.
YOUNG CHILDREN: PRIORITY ONE
The Light The Night Walk is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's nationwide evening walk to raise awareness and funds to cure leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
We're participating in the Walk in honor of all individuals who are battling blood cancers. These people are
the real heroes and we need your support to help accelerate cures and hope for patients and their families.
Although research is responsible for increasing survival rates for these diseases, the battle is far from over.
