The Northeast Indiana Light the Night Walk, the region’s premier event to honor those whose lives have been touched by blood cancers, will be held at East Noble High School in Kendallville.
Registration and family activities will begin at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, September 24. The opening ceremony will start at 6:45 p.m. and the walk will immediately follow.
The event will conclude with a fireworks show over nearby Bixler Lake. Proceeds from the walk benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Katie Probst of Kendallville is the Honored Hero for this year’s walk. A third-grade teacher at Wayne Center Elementary School in Kendallville, she was diagnosed with Stage 2A Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2018.
After receiving treatment, Katie’s cancer is in remission. She’s emerged from the experience with a strengthened resolve to help raise awareness of those like her waging their own battles against leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma. Participating teams and walkers will start the walk at the East Noble High School track before venturing out onto the streets of Kendallville on a 1.8-mile course. They’ll return to the track, where they’ll have the opportunity to watch the fireworks show.
