The Light the Night Walk is this weekend and they are kicking off with an honored hero.
Light the Night is the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's annual evening fundraising walk.
This year they've got one of the youngest honored heroes.
Seventeen months ago, on the way to soccer practice, 7 year old Chase Holstin and his family received life changing news. He was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.
The most common blood cancer in children.
Nearly one million Americans have blood cancer. Every 4 minutes someone is diagnosed and every 10 minutes someone dies.
Each year thousands of walkers from across the United States raise funds to support lifesaving cancer research.
This year the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society has asked little Chase to be their honored hero.
Light the Night is this Saturday evening at Washburn University.
