Welcome to Our Light The Night Walk Fundraising Page

Join us as we walk with family & friends and families across the country in our 6th Light The Night Walk in Nashville on November 2, 2018.   We walk in in honor of Addie, who survived leukemia when she was 2 1/2 years old.  Last summer, Addie and her Tennessee Socccer Club won the U18 National Championship.  This year she is playing Division 1 Soccer in college.  She is why I raise money for this amazing organization.

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 $984,933 in the past five years to help The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) accelerate cures for leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma.  We are looking forward to going over 1 Million dollars this year!

As a result of your involvement, hundreds of thousands of people diagnosed with blood cancer are today living normal, productive lives.  My daughter Addie is herself a leukemia survivor and will celebrate her 19th birthday this October. She has been healthy and cancer-free for over 16 beautiful years and is why I am honored to serve once again as the 2018 Light the Night Honorary Chair.  Our team walks because we want 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.

Without your efforts LLS could not fund the research of such treatments as targeted therapies that zero in on cancer cells and kill them or immunotherapy drugs that use a patient's own immune system to kill cancer.

Please join our team's effort today by registering to walk or by making a donation. Your participation in the Light The Night Walk will save lives not someday, but today.

Updating our page to make sure you all know that this year, our

5th Annual Light the LATE Night Concert will take place right after the fireworks when you complete the walk in Nashville!  All you need to do to attend is sign up to walk and raise $100! 

In addition, we have recently added another bus tour to raise even more funds for LLS!


Saturday, November 3rd 10am – 2pm

The city of Nashville was more than just a backdrop for the show that bears its name - it’s practically a character. Join Charles Esten on a fascinating ride that will visit the spots that played a major part in the life of his character, Deacon.

The show NASHVILLE finished it’s 6 season run at the historic Ryman Auditorium, and it’s, fittingly, there that we will board and begin. The tour will continue on, as Charles describes the show’s connections to the many Nashville locales: The Bluebird Café, the real-life site of Deacon’s fictional bar The Beverly, Deacon’s house, Rayna’s house, the steps they broke up on, the stretch of road they crashed their truck on, and the bridge they walked across in the pilot episode, and where much later (SPOILER ALERT) they finally got engaged. These are only some of the places that you’ll see and hear so much about on this fascinating 3-hour tour guided by Deacon himself, Charles Esten. 

Get your tickets now. Help raise money to defeat blood cancer while receiving an unforgettable NASHVILLE experience!
