Walk with us

Register to be part of Light the Night 2019.

Register your attendance at your nearest event, and your reserved lantern will be ready for you to pick up on the night. Whether you will carry a gold, white or blue lantern, Light the Night is your opportunity to be part of genuine change for Aussie families touched by blood cancer.

It’s an empowering, beautiful and supportive event that brings family and friends together to reflect, remember and show their support. And, by fundraising ahead of Light the Night, you can help support researchers around the country as they continue their quest to understand blood cancer and find better treatments.

Register and encourage family, friends and workmates to join, carrying your lanterns together in solidarity.

If you would like to volunteer for 2019, 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!
