A welcome message from our Principal partner
On behalf of Bridgestone Australia and the Leukaemia Foundation, thank you for participating in Light the Night and providing hope for the thousands of Australians and their families living with blood cancer.
Bridgestone Australia is proud to have been the principal partner of Light the Night ever since its inception, as part of our long-running support of the Leukaemia Foundation spanning more than 35 years.
Together, the Leukaemia Foundation, Bridgestone, our network of stores throughout Australia and our customers continue to help support blood cancer patients through the provision of transport options to and from life-saving treatment, accommodation for regional families needing to relocate to be closer to treatment centres and raising critical funds towards investment into life-changing research.
Our ongoing partnership with the Leukaemia Foundation is a core part of our commitment to contributing to society under the company’s global ‘Our Way to Serve’ initiative. Throughout the year, our stores and customers are continually raising funds with $2 from every Turanza Serenity Plus tyre sold going directly to funding the Leukaemia Foundation’s transport service, as well as other fundraising initiatives.
It gives us great delight that you share the same passion for supporting and helping to raise funds for the incredible work the Leukaemia Foundation undertakes every day through their advocacy, research and provision of services to support those on their journey with blood cancer.
Thousands of families, including many in the Bridgestone network, will be shining a light on blood cancer in our own special way around the country on Saturday, 16 October – in a shared moment of hope and unity.
On behalf of everyone at Bridgestone and our network of stores, thank you for your support of Light the Night and your efforts in raising awareness and vital funds for the work of the Leukaemia Foundation.
Stephen Roche | Managing Director, Bridgestone Australia & New Zealand
For over twelve years, KOJO has brought Light the Night to life by telling the stories of Australians facing blood cancer that help to connect us all.
Together, KOJO and the Leukaemia Foundation have told the stories of people affected by blood cancer to the national stage, inspiring donor support and raising blood cancer awareness. KOJO also provides invaluable year-round support in our branding and digital space.
“KOJO is incredibly proud to partner with the Leukaemia Foundation. The Light the Night event raises vital money to support those with blood cancer and fund research to help more people survive.
Like many, we have felt the direct personal impact of blood cancer in our lives, when in 2010 we lost a KOJO founder John ‘Bluesky’ Chataway.
On the night, I light a gold lantern to also remember my Dad, who died of blood cancer 34 years ago, at only 49 years of age.”
Stephen Lord | CEO, KOJO Group

Simon National Carriers
We are incredibly grateful for the support of Simon National Carriers, who have continued to support Australians living with blood cancer.
A family-owned business and amongst the largest privately-owned national freight companies operating in Australia. Supporting the Leukaemia Foundation all year-round is part of the culture at Simon National Carriers, an incredible ally to all Australians facing a blood cancer diagnosis.
Through their partnership, money raised at Light the Night is spent where it’s needed most – on the special care families need to make it through and life-saving research.
“We started out as a family business and still are a family business. We have a number of personal connections to blood cancer and we see the importance of showing support for those we know and others affected by blood cancer.
We also appreciate the importance of giving back to the community, in both metro and regional areas where we operate. Simon National Carriers jumped at the opportunity to support the work of the Leukaemia Foundation through Light the Night, as Logistics Partner and we are proud to be supporting the cause and on the road to beating blood cancer together”
