MINNEAPOLIS -- In a couple of weeks, the streets of Minneapolis will light up for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Light The Night Walk.
Thirteen-year-old Grant Albin is a survivor who will take part in the event, which raises money for research to find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients.
Albin was diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) at 7 years old. He is now down to one pill a day and supports the Luekemia and Lymphoma Society with lemonade stands, fundraisers and the Light the Night Walk.
"I don't want to see anybody else suffer from cancer," he said.
Friends, families and co-workers form fundraising walk teams in nearly 200 communities across North America. On Sunday, Oct. 16, participants in Minneapolis will join together carrying illuminated lanterns to take steps to end cancer.
The event begins at 4 p.m. at The Depot and the walk will cross the historic Stone Arch Bridge before heading back to The Depot to wrap up the night with live music and dancing. The route is approximately 1.5 miles and is wheelchair accessible.
