Newbridge Academy participates in The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada’s (LLSC) Light the Night Walk
Light The Night Walk
We are proud to show our support for this cause, and for one of our grade 9 students, Parker Murchison, who is an ambassador for the LLSC. These are “are evenings filled with inspiration. During this leisurely walk, families and friends gather in select sites across Canada to bring light to the dark world of cancer. Thousands of walkers carry illuminated lanterns showcasing their relation to the cause; a white lantern for blood cancer patients and survivors, a red one to walk as a supporter and a gold one in memory of a loved one lost.” LLSC.
Newbridge Academy’s Support Leading up to Event
Parker Murchison, Newbridge Academy student-athlete and childhood cancer survivor, was a speaker for elementary students giving understanding, hope and encouragement in the fight against cancer. More information on Parker’s inspiration to our students can be found here (newbridgeacademy.ca/the-leukemia-and-lymphoma-society-of-canada-light-the-night-walk/).
