The annual Light the Night events are a time for survivors, supporters of the event, and all those who have been touched by cancer to walk together and raise awareness about blood cancers. The walk takes place every year around the country – currently 11 cities in all participate.
The United Food & Commercial Workers Union across Canada raises money each year for research on how to eradicate blood cancers. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada and UFCW have a long history with one another and since that involvement started, UFCW has raised over 38 MILLION dollars for LLSC to help find a cure.
Edmonton’s walk on September 23rd was a huge success and now it’s Calgary’s turn.
Please join us for Calgary’s Light the Night walk on October 21st in Eau Claire Market.

Volunteers would be asked to arrive at 3:30 p.m. to check in at the volunteer tent and then head inside to help set up the area for all the walkers. The volunteer shift would start at 4:30 p.m. and end at 7:00 p.m. Afterwards, however, anyone wishing to stay and help pack up the supplies will be treated to some pizza as a small but tasty “thank you!”
