Welcome to my Light The Night Walk Fundraising Page

Hello! My name is Abby Kon and I am so excited to walk in the D.C. Light the Night walk for the fourth year in a row! After my first three years of being involved, I decided to take on the leadership role of Senior Captain of the walk within our Woodson team. This walk means so much to me because of my family's personal connection to cancer, as well as all of the people I've met and stories I've heard along my journey with our Woodson Young Hearts club. The walk is a celebratory event in D.C. that commemorates those who have lost their lives from this vicous diease, but also celebrates the strength displayed by the fighters and their families. Each year I participate in this walk, I, too, celebrate these courageous families. However I also celebrate and reflect on the work my teammates and I have done to raise funds and awareness for a cause that deserves all of the attention it will ever receive. Please join me in the fight against blood cancer by joining my team and walking beside us or making a donation :)


The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) funds the research and development of therapies that save thousands of lives every day. Two examples are targeted therapies that seek out cancer cells and kill them, and the use of a patient's own immune system to kill cancer. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light The Night Walk helps fund those treatments for patients like Joseph, a leukemia survivor.

At just 9 years old, Joseph was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). LLS was there with Joseph and his family from the very beginning with friendship, support and critical treatment information, through daily chemo, aches and pains, weight gain, lumbar punctures and daily clinic visits. Now Joseph is in remission.

Joseph's is just one of the thousands of lives saved because of the LLS work supported by people like you.

Please make a donation :)

Thank you for bringing us all closer to living in a world without blood cancers!
