Light the Night is a walk-a-thon held in cities and towns across Canada to raise money for the LLSC.

On Saturday, October 24, members and staff of Locals 175 & 633, along with many, many supporters from the community and other UFCW Locals, took part in a Light the Night walk in Ottawa to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada (LLSC).

Walkers carried illuminated lanterns throughout the walk: White for those with blood cancer or survivors, red for those walking as a supporter, and gold for those walking in memory of a loved one who they have lost to blood cancer.

Thanks to the $5,000 raised by our Local Union, generous donations, and pledges collected by everyone who walked that night, the LLSC raised $335,000!
