Emily Brown (a Grade 2 student at Allenby) was selected as the honoured hero for Toronto’s Light the Night walk this year. Emily has just finished a long (2+ year) battle with Leukemia and her team “Emily’s Entourage” will be participating at Nathan Phillips square on October 19th. Each fall, teams of families and friends come together to walk at twilight carrying illuminated lanterns: red for supporters, white for patients and survivors, and gold to remember loved ones lost. It is the nation’s night to pay tribute and to bring hope to all those affected by blood cancers.
If any Allenby families would like to join Emily’s Entourage for the walk, click here (no fundraising is required).
