Get Involved

Thank you for walking with us

Information about next year's Light the Night events will be posted shortly.

You can also host a Light the Night event of your own, at any time. Or, register your interest in 2019's event here.

Host your own Light the Night

We need your help to light up Australia for blood cancer.

The Leukaemia Foundation host events in capital cities and major regional centres, but we’d love community supporters to help us host a private or public event in your community.

Volunteering to host your own Light the Night event is truly something special!

Your Light the Night event can be as simple as a few families and friends gathering in your local park, or something bigger, supported by your local council. It’s completely up to you!

By hosting your own event, you’ll join thousands of people across the country who will light up Australia, helping to raise vital funds for blood cancer research.

We’ll give you all the support and tools you need to create an inspiring and unforgettable night.

Volunteers make all the difference!

We couldn't hold Light the Night without the help of our amazing volunteers, who give up their time and expertise at events, big and small, across Australia.

If you would like to volunteer for 2018, we will give you all the training and support you need.

We need people to host events, hand out lanterns, be track marshals, take donations and help with setting up and packing up.

We also welcome volunteers who have specialist skills wanting to donate their time and professional expertise, such as event photographers, videographers and face painters.

By becoming a volunteer, you will be helping our cause in the most practical way, have the chance to meet new people, and have fun!
