Sunday's Wade Oval event begins at 5 p.m. with family-friendly fun, including inflatables, food, drinks, music and much more. There will be an inspirational Opening Ceremony at sundown which will be immediately followed by a 1-mile walk, according to Light The Night.

The Wade Oval event will conclude with a fireworks finale.

WKYC is proud to be a media sponsor of Light The Night.

What is Light The Night? It’s a national fundraising movement that celebrates and commemorates lives touched by blood cancers. Corporate teams, families, and friends who participate in the evening walk will carry illuminated lanterns -- white for survivors and patients, red for supporters, and gold in memory of a lost loved one.

Light The Night is more than just a walk. It’s people coming together to shed light on the dark world of cancer.

Everyone across Northeast Ohio is welcome – and encouraged – to join the Light The Night.
