 Walkers will transform Lillydale Lake into a sea of glowing light in a bid to beat blood cancer.

Wandin Rotary Club’s Brian Hodgson organised the Thursday 27 September Light the Night event to support the Leukaemia Foundation.

The twilight lantern walk will kick off at 5pm

“We would like you to bring your families, friends and colleagues to shine a beautiful lantern of hope as we walk around the Lillydale Lake,” Mr Hodgson said.

Walkers carry a gold balloon to remember a loved one, white to reflect on their own blood cancer journey, or blue to support others.

“I began my walk for Leukaemia to support a relative,” he said.

“Over many years we have shared many Light The Night walks together and enjoyed the company of others each with their own journeys.

“One outcome of the night is that we raise money to change lives.

“We need your help to add to the Leukaemia Foundation fund for urgently-needed medical research, to help more people survive and ultimately beat leukaemia, myeloma, lymphoma and other blood disorders.”
