How You Can Get Involved

Light the Night

Light The Night is the Society’s annual evening to, pay tribute, bring hope and celebrate the blood cancer community. Each year, teams of friends, families, and co-workers raise millions of dollars for support services and research to improve the lives of people impacted by a blood cancer. On the evening of Light The Night, participants gather in cities and towns across Canada with illuminated lanterns, white for survivors, gold to remember a loved one and red for supporters, to celebrate their efforts throughout the year.
