The annual Light the Night events are a time for survivors, supporters of the event, and all those who have been touched by cancer to walk together and raise awareness about blood cancers. The walk takes place every year around the country – currently 11 cities in all participate.
The United Food & Commercial Workers Union across Canada raises money each year for research on how to eradicate blood cancers. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada and UFCW have a long history with one another and since that involvement started, UFCW has raised over 38 MILLION dollars for LLSC to help find a cure.
Edmonton’s walk on September 23rd was a huge success and now it’s Calgary’s turn.
Please join us for Calgary’s Light the Night walk on October 21st in Eau Claire Market.

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
