Toronto – October 24, 2022 – Commemorating another year of life-changing fundraising from coast, to coast, to coast, UFCW Canada members and Local Unions took part in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada’s (LLSC) Light the Night event – held virtually on October 22.
Held as a singular, national event since the beginning of the pandemic, Light the Night is one of Canada’s largest fundraising events bringing communities together in a solidarity of purpose to help raise funds and awareness for individuals battling blood cancers.
This year’s event focused on members of the blood cancer community sharing their stories and answering the question “Who did you let your light shine for?”
The virtual event also featured researchers and front-line professionals providing first-hand updates on their cutting-edge work and how the LLSC continues to support them in their journey of one day finding a cure.
