Light the night

Now in its tenth year, Light the Night is a unique event bringing Australia’s blood cancer community together in more than 100 locations to remember and reflect during a moving ceremony and short lantern walk.
Light the Night fundraisers all receive a coloured lantern to carry as darkness falls and celebrate what they’ve achieved to help people with blood cancer.
They hold gold lanterns to remember loved ones lost to blood cancer, while fundraising to help others facing a similar challenge.
Those who carry a white lantern have been diagnosed with blood cancer themselves, raising money to make a better future for those who may have to follow in their footsteps.
Blue lanterns are raised high by the community that surrounds us all, funding the life-saving support services that their families or someone they know may one day need.
