'Light the Night' walks to honor Bill Walsh

To honor a man who revolutionized the game of football and who donated his time and effort to combat cancer, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society will dedicate its Bay Area Light the Night Walks to the memory of Bill Walsh.

Walsh was diagnosed with leukemia in 2004, two years after losing his own son to the disease. Although Walsh primarily bore his grief and fought his battle with cancer in private, he publicly lent his support to the society.

One fan has taken his admiration for Walsh and created a team called the Walking for Walsh Team, which will attempt to raise $25,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society during the upcoming walks.

To sign up , donate or find out more about the Walking for Walsh team visit http://www.lightthenight.org/sf or http://www.lightthenight.org/sj.

Bay Area walks take place throughout this month: Oct. 4 in Oyster Point Marina in San Francisco; Oct. 6 in Menlo Park and Santa Rosa; Oct. 13 in Walnut Creek; Oct. 18 in San Francisco's Justin Herman Plaza and Oct. 20 in San Jose's Plaza de Cesar Chavez.
