The Leukemia Foundation Light the Night event was held on September 11 to help raise money and awareness for families affected by blood cancers. The event in Devonport was a walk hosted in conjunction with the Devonport Rotary Club with additional support by TT-Line.
The night started at the Devonport Surf Life Saving Club on the Bluff. Participants walked along Victoria Parade with lanterns to light their way and ended the walk at Roundhouse Park. This was a good chance for the community to rally behind such a valuable cause. Representatives from Tasmania’s Thylacine 501st Garrison came dressed as Star Wars Stormtroopers , which helped to make this a fun family event. The Rotary Club of Devonport hosted a barbecue and their volunteers provided exemplary support for the night.
Additional Light the Night events are scheduled all across Australia and further information can be found here:
