Local residents are invited to attend the Leukaemia Foundation’s Light the Night, an uplifting event being held Wednesday, 16 October at thirteen locations across Queensland, which aims to brighten the lives of blood cancer patients and their families.
The Queensland locations are Brisbane, Bundaberg, Caboolture, Cairns, Gold Coast, Hervey Bay, Ipswich, Mackay, Port Douglas, Rockhampton, Sunshine Coast, Toowoomba and Townsville.
The Light the Night walk is an inspiring event that gives everyone the chance to show their support and share hope and compassion with those affected by leukaemias, lymphomas, myeloma and related blood disorders.
To register for the walk at Lake Kawana, Bokarina and receive a free lantern, please go to www.lightthenight.org.au or call 1800 500 088 before 5pm Tuesday, 15 October.
The highlight of the walk will be the lighting of the lanterns at sunset. The white, blue and gold lanterns each carry a special meaning: white for blood cancer patients and survivors, blue for supporters and gold for those remembering a loved one lost.
Leukaemia Foundation of Queensland CEO, Bill Petch, said around 10,000 Queenslanders now regularly attended the annual Light the Night walks.
“This special evening gives anybody touched by blood cancer an opportunity to gather with their friends, family and work mates in a positive environment with others that understand the journey they are on,” said Mr Petch.
“Participants can also learn more about the Foundation’s work and can raise funds to ensure promising medical research will continue along with the provision of free vital support services to patients and their families,” he said.
This special free community event is made possible thanks to our generous sponsors including Bridgestone Australia Ltd, Seeley International and Toll.
The Leukaemia Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation receiving no ongoing government funding and therefore relies on the generosity and support of sponsors, individuals and business partners to continue caring for patients and their families.
