World Cancer Day-Light the Night Walk

 World Cancer Day takes place every year on 4 February and is the single initiative under which Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) and the entire world can unite together in the fight against the global cancer epidemic. World Cancer Day is an initiative of UICC, through which they aim to help save millions of preventable deaths each year by raising awareness and education about cancer, and pressing governments and individuals across the world to take action against the disease.

 Each year, in communities across Canada, teams of families, friends, co-workers and local and national corporations come together to raise funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada’s Light The Night Walk events and bring help and hope to people battling blood cancers. 

 Each Feb 4, thousands of people join the Light The Night Walk to raise funds that are saving lives today.

This year, the Light The Night Canada – Vancouver Walks team is hosting an event to coincide withWorld Cancer Day.
