Why Participate this year?
This year, Light The Night is excited to return to in person events in 6 locations across the country. As registration and planning for our events develop, we will be sharing more information on each city’s Light The Night experience throughout the next few months.
This year, there will be three types of Light The Night events: Light The Night Signature events, Light The Night Community Hosted events, and Light The Night My Way events.
- Light The Night Signature Events are hosted by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada, and will take place in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Ottawa, Calgary, and Halifax. These events will feature an indoor experience as well as an outdoor walk component, reminiscent of our past Light The Night Walks. Depending on each city’s event venue, experiences such as memorial messaging, local artisans and entertainment may be featured at these events. Due to the nature of hosting these events in local venues, only registered participants can attend these Signature events in person.
- Light The Night Community Hosted Events are like our Signature events but they will be hosted and managed by teams of volunteers. St. John's is currently our first Community Hosted event; the St. John's community has come together to manage their own Light The Night experience to host their own event in autumn of 2023.
- Light The Night My Way is a new way to celebrate with us regardless of where you are in the country! This is an excellent option if you are not near any of the Signature or Community Hosted events and would like to create a team of your own to fundraise and support the blood cancer community.

A blood cancer diagnosis is more than the illness. It is a community of people first.
It is a person who will have to quit a job, stop school and pause plans for the future to overcome a grave illness.
It is a person who will have to care for a loved one day-after-day for weeks, months or even years.
It is a person who will find the best course of action to treat the illness, monitor the progress, or offer advice.
It is a person who will dedicate their career to finding new ways to treat the disease with fewer side effects.
It is a family that grieves a loved one lost to the disease.
