Brisbane residents are invited to fill the night sky with colourful lanterns of white, blue and gold at the Leukaemia Foundation’s Light the Night walk, an uplifting event being held at 13 locations across Queensland.

The event aims to raise awareness and much-needed funds to help improve the lives of those living with leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma and other blood related disorders.

The white, blue and gold lanterns each carry a special meaning: white for patients and survivors, blue for supporters and gold for those remembering a loved one lost.
