We can’t wait to see you at Light the Night this October. Register to attend your local Light the Night event now.
Your reserved lantern will be ready for you to pick up on the night at the event.
The Leukaemia Foundation will support you every step of the way to help you raise funds. We’ll give you hints and tips, email and social media ideas and your own online fundraising page to personalise with photos and stories.

You can register as an individual or as a group of family, friends and workmates carrying your lanterns together in solidarity.
The night will take your breath away. It’s an empowering, beautiful and supportive event that brings family and friends together to remember, reflect and help raise funds for vital blood cancer research.
Host your own Light the Night
We need your help to light up Australia for blood cancer on Friday 5 October.
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.

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.
