Michael C. Hall may play a serial killer on the hit show Dexter, but now he’s starring in a new role: lead Ambassador for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) 2011 Light The Night Walks.

The Light The Night Walk is the largest cancer fundraiser night walk in the country, attracting over 250,000 participants to help raise funds for high-impact cancer research and crucial patient services. Hall, who is in remission for Hodgkin’s lymphoma, is encouraging people to walk in support of this important cause.

“The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society pours a tremendous amount of money directly into cutting-edge cancer research— research that I’ve certainly benefited from,” Hall stated. “It’s an organization that you can be confident is at the forefront of moving things forward.”

The 40-year-old actor also lent his award-winning skills to a new PSA campaign called “Walk As if Your Life Depended on It.” The video was produced and directed by filmmaker, Jesse Dylan, and in the short Hall shares experiences from his personal battle with lymphoma.

“We are so grateful for Michael C. Hall’s participation in this year’s Light The Night fundraiser for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society,” said LLS’s chief marketing and revenue officer, Nancy L. Klein. “His empowering message inspires us and strengthens our dedication to help patients live longer, better lives.”

LLS is the single largest nonprofit contributor to blood cancer research, and provides more than $20 million in financial aid and co-pay assistance to cancer patients every year. Pretty amazing!

The PSA has yet to hit the web, but when it does we’ll keep you posted. And if you want to be like Dexter, you can find out more about participating in a Light The Night Walk here!
