Light the Night for the Leukaemia Foundation
Gather with your loved ones and join thousands of families and friend groups as part of the official virtual lantern lighting ceremony to shine a light on blood cancer.
The Leukaemia Foundation invites every person whose life has been touched by blood cancers like leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma to be part of this beautiful community event.
On the night – bring your loved ones together and take part in the official virtual lantern lighting ceremony – which is brought to life online. All you need is access to a screen with an internet connection and your lantern to light.
The lighting of lanterns symbolises the hope we share for a future free of blood cancer and the support of a community that understands the darkness a blood cancer brings to our lives.
The money raised by those taking part in Light the Night gives new hope to important cancer research programs searching for life-saving treatments.
Your fundraising efforts can transform fear into hope in incredible ways, by furthering the life-saving work of cancer researchers and ensuring someone will be there for families through every scary, uncertain moment that follows a diagnosis.
What the colours mean:
Blue – to show your support for those affected by blood cancer.
Gold – to remember a loved one lost to blood cancer.
White – for your own blood cancer journey.
How to get involved:
You can host a twilight gathering with your loved ones in your own special way on Sunday 16 October 2021 OR register to join an existing Light the Night planned by a loved one.
When your fundraising page total surpasses $100, you’ll secure your personal lantern to light on the night.
Lanterns are limited and only available to those who have funds raised on their personal Light the Night page.
To receive a lantern, each person registered for Light the Night must raise $100 or more on their fundraising page by Sunday 26 September 2021.
Your lantern will be sent to the address that you entered when you signed up to Light the Night.
Plan your event:
How you choose to host your Light the Night event at home is limited only by your imagination. You can host a fancy dinner party, a casual sunset barbecue with close mates or a cosy twilight picnic in the backyard. It’s entirely up to you.
