On Saturday, November 17th, the JP Griffin Group joined forces with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) and gathered together to celebrate, honor, and remember those touched by cancer. The Light The Night Walk is LLC's nationwide evening walk, hosted annually in downtown Phoenix, and is open to all children, adults, and pets.
The night was filled with games, singing, event booths wrapped in photos of loved ones, and survivor huddles, which encouraged people from all over the valley to meet and connect. Memories of missed loved ones flooded the event while survivors and supporters shared their stories of hope on stage. During the testimonials, the lanterns were lit in memory remembrance first, then lit for the survivors, and lastly lit for the supporters. During the one mile walk, participants carried their illuminated balloons to celebrate and commemorate all the lives touched by cancer. Once all the participants crossed the finish line, a spectacular fireworks show ensued, ending a very emotional night with some happiness and hope.
