Light the Night

Light the Night 2018 is Here!

Each year, thousands participate in Light the Night events across Canada. Survivors, supporters, and those touched by cancer walk together to raise awareness and funds. Currently, 11 Canadian cities host Light the Night events.

A proud supporter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada, the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) Union has raised over $38 million in support of blood cancer research. Of the many ways in which union members have raised money for this cause has been participating in annual Light the Night events.

Join Local 401 as we Light the Night in support of blood cancer research in Edmonton and Calgary. We always are in search of volunteers to help out and to walk with us. Our representatives (info below) would be happy to connect you with our teams.

Upon arrival, volunteers are asked to please check in at the volunteer tent and head inside to help set up the area for the walkers. Normally, our volunteer shift is done within a couple of hours of the start of the walk, but we would be grateful to anyone willing to stay and help us pack up the supplies.
