Event:
A Leukaemia Foundation Fundraising Event


Twinkle Twinkle little light. This magical evening is a community event designed to shine a little light of hope on the lives of people living with blood cancer.

The Leukaemia Foundation's Light the Night in Geelong is a gentle, atmospheric evening filled with emotion and goodwill you need to experience to fully appreciate. Families and friends are invited to walk at twilight in a show of solidarity with people affected by cancer and to raise much needed funds for The Leukaemia Foundation. The walk is suitable for people of all ages and abilities.



There will be three different coloured lanterns of hope on offer. Gold Lanterns are a sign of remembrance. White Lanterns represent a personal journey, and Blue Lanterns are to show support for someone dear.

Over 40,000 people are expected to gather at the Light the Night festival in Geelong, and this is an extremely important fundraising event. As they don't receive any ongoing government support, The Leukaemia Foundation is hoping to raise $2 million for medical research into treatment and cures, as well as maintaining the free emotional and practical support program they provide each year to those in need.



A lantern can be redeemed in exchange for donations of $20 or more and will go toward helping those living with cancer.

Light the Night Geelong is being held on Friday 7th October 2016 from 6.30pm with the walk to commence at 8pm from Johnstone Park, Mercer Street, Geelong.
