Light The Night Halifax

X-Men Football Tackles Cancer

The X-Men Football Team will Celebrate Light the Night in Antigonish on Oct 21st 

Being a member of the X Men Football Team is not just about the game of football it is about a sense of community.  Looking for opportunities to support the community is a key part of our culture.  This year the X Men Football Team will be supporting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada and the Light the Night Event on October 21, 2023. This event is held nationally to support and honour all those affected by blood cancers.  A few statistics for you to know:

  • Every 24 minutes someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer
  • 40 percent of childhood cancers are blood cancers
  • Over 155 000 Canadians are affected a blood cancer.

We look to support all Canadians that are dealing with or have had a blood cancer.  On a personal note we also want to support our fellow X Men teammate Sam Taylor who is a Hodgkin Lymphoma Survivor. The proceeds from this event will support ongoing education and programs for Patients and caregivers and research needed to one day achieve the vision of a blood cancer free world.

Light The Night brings communities across Canada together for one magical evening to share stories, remember loved ones lost and pay tribute to our heroes, bringing light, love and hope to dispel the darkness of blood cancers!

We are taking the first step and showing our support.

Join our team today.

We’re proud to support the blood cancer community through Light The Night.

Blood cancers are the fifth most common form of cancer in Canada, affecting more than 155,000 Canadians—our family members, our friends and neighbours, our colleagues, ourselves. But together, we can shine a light toward a future without blood cancers.
