Seven hundred pink floating lanterns will fill the evening sky at the second-annual Illuminate the Cure event, benefitting the Arkansas Affiliate of Susan G. Komen.  The organization is inviting those touched by brest cancer to release their lanterns in honor of loved ones, lighting up the night for mothers everywhere. 

Held on Mother's Day, Sunday, May 12, Illuminate the Cure will take place on the Big Dam Bridge with access on both the Little Rock and North Little Rock sides of the river. Lantern pick-up and purchase will begin at 6:30 p.m. on both sides of the bridge, with lanterns launching at 7:30 p.m.

Illuminate the Cure floating lanterns may be purchased in advance for $25 each at komenarkansas.org.   One lantern grants two people access on the bridge.  Children under five are free. Families are encouraged to purchase more than one.  All floating lanterns are biodegradable and flame retardant. 

In the event of inclement weather, Illuminate the Cure will be rescheduled for Monday, May 13, at 7:30 p.m.
