Light the Night

Please join us for our annual Light the Night walk at sunset Wednesday, 5 October at one of 12 locations across Queensland.

Registrations are now open at www.lightthenight.org.au so gather your friends, family and workmates and form a team for this free community event supporting blood cancer patients.

You can help create a beautiful sea of lights by lighting a coloured lantern and taking a leisurely walk with patients, their families and supporters.

  • White lanterns for blood cancer patients and survivors,
  • Blue for supporters, and
  • Gold for those remembering a loved one lost.

Prior to the walk, entertainment will be provided and guest speakers will share their inspirational stories.

Event details can be found at www.lightthenight.org.au.

2011 Doorknock Appeal

Thanks for knocking on doors!

Thanks to those who volunteered to knock on more than 750,000 doors last month during the 2011 Doorknock Appeal. We are on track to raise $1.2 million! Thanks everyone – it was a huge effort. All money raised from the Doorknock Appeal helps us support patients and their families living with leukaemias, lymphomas, myeloma and related blood disorders.
