Light the Night 2019

Let’s stand together during Blood Cancer Awareness Month

Let’s stand together during Blood Cancer Awareness Month. Join the Leukaemia Foundation for an inspiring walk.

More than 35,000 Australians will unite to walk together and to shine a light on blood cancer at the annual Light the Night event.

The Leukaemia Foundation’s beautiful lantern walk is the only event in Australia that truly brings the country’s blood cancer community together, with crowds creating a sea of glowing support for Australians affected by blood cancer.
For the first time, in 2019 Light the Night will be held simultaneously across Australia on the same night, with flagship events happening in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth and more events planned in regional cities and country towns across the nation.

Participants carry lanterns in symbolic colours of blue, white and gold on a beautiful, reflective walk.

Gold … to remember loved ones lost
White … to honour those battling the disease, and those who have won the fight
Blue … to show support and hope for a cure for the future

To find out more details about Light the Night in Sydney and to become a part of Light the Night today by signing up.

You can also reserve lanterns to pick up on the night, or lanterns can be purchased at the event.
