You can help more Australians beat blood cancer by joining Light the Night, the Leukaemia Foundation’s annual fundraising walk.
More than 60,000 Australians are living with blood cancers including leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma or a related blood disorder and every day, another 35 Australians will be diagnosed.
Sadly, every two hours someone will lose their life. You can bring a little light into the lives of others by shining a lantern with family and friends, and raising funds in advance tosupport our vision to beat blood cancer.
It’s a good feeling to walk in solidarity but helping more people live longer and better doesn’t come free.
The Leukaemia Foundation needs to fundraise $2 million. You can help by simply raising $100 before you walk. It is easy to do if you sign up early and use the ideas include in your fundraising kit. The Leukaemia Foundation team will also be in touch to offer you help along the way.
The money you raise will give families the emotional and practical support they need, and fund research to help more Australians live longer and have a better quality of life. Join a walk today to reserve your lantern and receive your kit in time to raise $100 before you walk and shine your lantern with pride.
Hosts in regional and rural towns in all states and territories will stage their own events to ensure more Australians than ever will feel part of this beautiful evening.
Families and friends will come together for a gentle walk at twilight, carrying one of three coloured lanterns; gold to remember a loved one, white for their own blood cancer journey, or blue to show they care.
