Join our inspiring walk

Help us raise $1.5m to care for Australian families through research and support

Australia will unite on Friday October 9 to brighten the lives of families affected by leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma.

Gather with family and friends to light a special lantern; gold to remember a loved one, white for your own journey, or blue to show you care.

The money you raise will fund research and support, and your presence will lift many hearts as we walk in hope for a future free of blood cancer.


So far, we've raised
