Take Back the Light

Each year we hold our annual Light The Night Walk in communities across Canada, raising millions of dollars for blood cancer research and patient care. This year the pandemic  prevented us from walking together, but we were still able to Take Back the Light that COVID-19 and Cancer tried to take away.

If you missed the event, you can still experience the magic of Light The Night from the comfort and safety of your own home, until the end of 2020.
