Principal partner

Bridgestone Australia

Australia’s most trusted tyre brand, together with their nation-wide network of Bridgestone retail stores, has supported families living with blood cancer for more than 34 years now.

Bridgestone’s global commitment to corporate social responsibility, known as ‘Our Way to Serve’, is built around three priority areas: supporting people, enhancing mobility and environmental stewardship.

“We wanted to be able to support the Leukaemia Foundation in new ways into the future, and through the sale of our popular Turanza Serenity Plus tyre, Australian motorists can also show their support for the charity all year round simply through their tyre choice.

Our commitment to the Leukaemia Foundation is very much about supporting the community... supporting research initiatives to help better understand blood cancers, find better treatments, increase access to clinical trials and personalised treatment options and ultimately – to find a cure for blood cancers.”

Stephen Roche | Managing Director, Bridgestone Australia & New Zealand

Please note the Patient Transport Service mentioned in the video above is currently temporarily suspended due to COVID-19.
Bridgestone Australia is a proud partner of the Leukaemia Foundation and been instrumental in getting people to and from hospital appointments by funding the patient transport program since 1986.
Major partner

Holden

Holden has supported Australian families facing blood cancer since 2002 – following work by racing legend, the late Peter Brock, who helped to establish the Leukaemia Foundation’s patient transport program in 1999.

Since then, our partnership with Holden has evolved to further support the special care needed to help Australians facing blood cancer make it through.

“The Leukaemia Foundation provides an enormously valuable service to people with blood cancer, and we aim to be able to assist in as many ways as possible. Our 18 year relationship is important to our team, assisting the Leukaemia Foundation to further increase their flexibility and patient reach.”

Matt Rattray-Wood | Marketing Director Holden

Creative partner

KOJO

For over ten years, KOJO has brought Light the Night to life by telling the stories of Australians facing blood cancer that help to connect us all.

KOJO is an exciting and pioneering national sport, entertainment and experiences studio – captivating audiences all around the world.

In 2020, when faced with unprecedented changes to Light the Night, KOJO has helped to bring the new event to life through photography, videography and the beautiful lantern lighting ceremony.

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 32 years ago, at only 49 years of age.”
