Light the Night walk raises more than $1 million for cancer research

Every year, thousands of people raise money to participate in the Light the Night Walk fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. We went to the D.C. walk Saturday night, where participants raised more than $1 million for cancer research.
