What is Light the Night?
Light the Night is the Leukaemia Foundation’s beautiful evening lantern walk, where Australians come together and transform the darkness into a sea of glowing light to give hope to all those impacted by blood cancer.
Lantern holders can also help raise vital funds to support families living with blood cancer and towards investment into life-changing research.
Light the Night fundraisers all receive a coloured lantern to carry as darkness falls and celebrate what they’ve achieved to help people with blood cancer.
They hold gold lanterns to remember loved ones lost to blood cancer, while fundraising to help others facing a similar challenge.
Those who carry a white lantern have been diagnosed with blood cancer themselves, raising money to make a better future for those who may have to follow in their footsteps.
Blue lanterns are raised high by the community that surrounds us all, funding the life-saving support services that their families or someone they know may one day need.
