The success that LLSC has experienced began by creating a clear and focused mission: to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. But it also required creating a fundraising campaign that many people would want to support and look forward to supporting.
With a clear strategy in mind, the Light The Night Walk was developed. Every year since 2003, thousands of Canadians have participated in the experience which funds advanced blood cancer innovations such as chemotherapies, stem cell transplantation, and the targeted therapies and immunotherapies that are saving thousands of lives today. Thanks to this research and access to better treatments, survival rates for many blood cancer patients have doubled, tripled, and even quadrupled since 1960. In 2019, its most successful year yet, the Light The Night Walk coordinated more than 35 000 people who together raised more than $6 million.
How did the Light The Night Walk become so successful? It focuses on building an incredible opportunity for corporations to create connection and meaning for their employees, something that’s especially important during challenging times. The campaign creates empowering experiences for employees to step-up, take action, feel personal gratitude, and see the real impact that their collective actions have created. And, it’s the perfect opportunity to intersect people’s inherent desire to do good with an employer’s desire to create meaningful opportunities for colleagues to come together and share a powerful experience.
