Light The Night Edmonton
• 9930 Groat Road Edmonton Alberta
Each year, in communities across Canada, teams of families, friends, co-workers come together to raise funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canadas (LLSC) Light The Night Walks and bring help and hope to people battling blood cancers and their families, and survivors. These efforts culminate in inspirational, memorable evening walks in nearly 200 communities across North America each fall; with 11 Official Canadian Light The Night Walks, and dozens of volunteer-hosted community and school walks, across Canada.
Funds raised through The Light The Night Walk:
Fund breakthrough therapies for blood cancer patients.
Provide Free educational materials, support programs and events for patients and families.
Provide local programs such as Family Support Groups and First Connection, a peer-to-peer counselling program
Comprehensive, personalized assistance through our Information Resource Centre
Educational information sessions for healthcare professionals and non-patient groups.
Light The Night Walks are evenings filled with inspiration. During this leisurely walk, families and friends gather in select sites across Canada to bring light to the dark world of cancer. Thousands of walkers carry illuminated lanterns showcasing their relation to the cause; a white lantern for blood cancer patients and survivors, a red one to walk as a supporter and a gold one in memory of a loved one lost.
