Welcome to Charles Esten's TEAM ADDIE Nashville Light The Night Walk Team!


The Light The Night Walk is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's evening walk and fundraising event to pay tribute and bring hope to people battling cancer. Thousands of participants raise funds for vital research and patient services and on these special nights they carry illuminated lanterns in support of those who have survived, those battling and those who have lost their fight with cancer.

Thanks to your generous support, we have raised over $815,737 in the past four years to help The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) accelerate cures for leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma.  A giant THANK YOU to ABC and “Who Wants to be a Millionaire?” for the opportunity to share my family's story and help other families in the ongoing fight against blood cancers. In 2013 I had the privilege to appear on the show and won $500,000 for LLS! 

As a result of your involvement, hundreds of thousands of people diagnosed with blood cancer are today living normal, productive lives.  We are on the threshold of amazing breakthroughs. Your money accelerates miraculous new treatments and healing therapies once thought impossible.  My daughter Addie is herself a leukemia survivor.  She has been healthy and cancer-free for over fifteen beautiful years, and this summer helped her Tennessee Soccer Club team win the U18 National Championship!  She is why I am honored to represent The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and help raise more funds for the life-saving research and patient family services LLS provides.
Unfortunately, the fight remains difficult for many family and friends we know who are battling cancer today.   But, together we can make a difference and help those patients and their families who are on the front lines of the battle.  Here’s how you can help:

•    Join one of our Charles Esten’s Team Addie teams or start a Team Addie in your area!    (see the links on the top right of this page).

•    Make a tax-deductible donation to a team member
•    Attend the Light the LATE Night Concert Fundraiser 

For the last three years our Light the LATE Night Concert has proven to be a perfect party of a way to wrap up the night and raise even more funds for this great cause. This year's concert will be held at the beautiful War Memorial Auditorium and looks to be perhaps the best one yet!  The concert takes place on October 20th at 9:30pm.  For tickets:  bit.ly/LTLN2017 



All walkers are encouraged to become Champions For Cures by raising $100 or more to help fight blood cancer. Walkers who raise $100 or more will receive night of walk benefits, including:

•    Light The Night T-Shirt
•    Light The Night Walk lantern
•    Wristband, which entitles a participant to food and refreshments

Becoming a Champion For Cures is even easier when you look at matching gift opportunities. Do you have a matching gift program at your place of employment?
 As a member of one of our teams, you will be eligible for additional Charles Esten Team Incentives.

Let's raise money and walk to cure cancer! Donate today or join our team today!  Thank you for all you do to support patients!

    "Thank you to Chip for spreading awareness about a disease that got my cousin Johnny back when there was no treatment or cure. I donate in my friend Edi Bevin's name, because I met her through a benefit Chip was performing at, and we became fast friends in a fifteen minute conversation. I couldn't make it to Tasmania for her big bday soiree, so this is my gift to her. "
