Participants of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's 2012 Light The Night® Walk sponsored by Marsh Supermarkets will have the opportunity to support Colts Coach Pagano in his fight against leukemia this Saturday, October 13th at Victory Field by signing a banner that will be presented to the Coach and his family at a later date.

The event will take place on Saturday, October 13th at 5:00 pm at Victory Field.

Each year, in communities all across the United States and Canada, teams of families, friends, co-workers and local and national corporations come together to raise funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS's) Light The Night® Walk events and bring help and hope to people battling blood cancers. Millions of consumers also help by donating at retail outlets. Light The Night Walk events are evenings filled with inspiration. During this leisurely walk, participants carry illuminated balloons - white for survivors, red for supporters and gold in memory of loved ones lost to cancer - thousands of walkers - men, women and children - form a community of caring, bringing light to the dark world of cancer.

"Light The Night Walk gives hope to patients and their families and lets them know they are not alone in their battle against cancer," said Corporate Walk Chair, Laura Gretencord of Marsh Supermarkets. "My teammates and I are looking forward to a fun and successful walk." Last year, more than $50 million was raised through Light The Night Walks in approximately 185 communities in North America.
