Our vision is Be the Light and Spread Kindness
Purpose: The Landon’s Light Foundation was created in memory of Landon Solberg, a twelve-year-old, West Fargo boy that fought a courageous battle with brain cancer and passed away September 17, 2019.

The Foundation honors the lasting impact of his life by shining his light and inspiring others to simply “Live like Landon.”
The Landon’s Light Scholarship is focused on inspiring academic growth through support of students pursuing their college degree following high school graduation. This scholarship recognizes students for demonstrating the core values important to Landon, which include his faith, kindness, compassion, strength, and courage.
The core values highlighted in this scholarship are essential to carry students through joyful, significant, and challenging moments throughout their life. These core values allowed Landon to enjoy life to its fullest despite the adversity he faced throughout his difficult cancer journey.
