Light The Night Toronto - Virtual Event

Normally, we would gather with friends, family and coworkers on October 22 in Toronto to walk in solidarity, holding our lanterns high to celebrate, honour and remember those affected by blood cancers.

This year, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada (LLSC) will host our flagship fundraising event and celebration, Light The Night, virtually.

The safety of our staff and the blood cancer community we serve is paramount. Given the ongoing health risks posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, LLSC determined that a virtual Light The Night is the most appropriate and responsible approach.  But that doesn’t mean it won’t be the most inspiring, magical and celebratory Light The Night ever! Together, we will “virtually” reinvent peer-to-peer fundraising, harnessing our collective ingenuity, resourcefulness, and relentless drive to make a difference in our communities.

Although public health and safety require us to be apart for now, our community needs us to come together.

Join us and take back the light that cancer and COVID-19 have tried to take away.
Be the voice that speaks up, the hand that reaches out and the light that cures cancer.

Take Back The Light

The money you raise will help fund critical programs and services that support those newly diagnosed, people in treatment and those navigating life after a blood cancer.

Show the blood cancer community they can still count on your support!
