My First Multimedia Article!!

The event I decided to cover is the Light the Night Walk that takes place at Towson University every year. I didn't participate in the walk last year so I thought it would be a great opportunity to make a difference in someone's life, even by a small amount.

The Light the Night Walk is supported by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and helps to bring hope and pay tribute to the many patients and their families affected by these diseases. Anyone can walk and it's a great way to give a little to such an important cause. Last year Towson University held this walk with everyone walking around campus holding candles. I saw them on campus and it was very breathtaking knowing that so many people come out for such an important cause.

Potential sources could be people that are walking in the walk, people that are volunteering and even people that are running this event at Towson. A few potential questions I thought of were:

  • Why did you decide to participate in this walk?
  • Are you walking for anyone specific?
  • Is this your first time participating in Light the Night Walk?
  • How do you think this will impact your life?
There will definitely be many photo possibilities whether it's during the walk, while people are warming up or of the volunteers setting up for the nights activities. The event occurs in Towson University on Saturday, November 1.

Hi Katelyn,
How did it go?
Did you get any good shots?
Remember to keep a tight focus. You could focus on one person (a survivor?) and build the story around that person.
