It began with a festival atmosphere and it finished with an emotional walk of remembrance.

Friday’s Light the Night event was a chance for everyone – cancer survivors, grieving families and supportive loved ones – to reflect. 

It is the third time Bendigo has hosted the annual fundraiser for blood cancer research.

Organisers were looking to build on their two-year tally of almost $30,000, which is donated to the Leukaemia Foundation.

More than 100 events like Bendigo’s are head around the country.

Thirty-five new blood cancer diagnoses are delivered every day.
