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 beat blood cancer.

It’s your night to walk beside those facing their own blood cancer journey, and to remember loved ones lost.

But it’s more than that – it’s your time to help raise vital funds for urgently needed blood cancer research.

Your Light the Night lantern

When you register for Light the Night, you receive your special lantern to carry at the event as darkness falls. Each lantern colour has a special meaning.

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.
