More than 5,000 patrons attended the sixth annual Light the Night Walk and Light the Late Night Concert in Nashville on Nov. 2 to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
After the two-mile walk at Nissan Stadium, Charles Esten hosted the Light the Late Night Concert that featured performances by Chris Janson, Kellie Pickler, Taylor Puskar and duo Reverie Lane. Held simultaneously in more than 200 cities across the country, the Light the Night Walk funds treatment and research for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
“My wife Patty and I walk in honor of our daughter, Addie, who survived leukemia when she was two-and-a-half years old,” says Charles. “She has been healthy and cancer-free for over 16 beautiful years. This year, she is playing Division I soccer in college. That is why I am honored to serve once again as the 2018 Light the Night Honorary chair. We raise money for this amazing organization, so that others might have the chance at the cancer-free life that our Addie has been blessed with.”
Charles’ Fundraising Page raised more than $130,000 this year, bringing his six-year total to more than $1.1 million for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
