Each year on Mt Buller an annual fundraiser is held for children who are seriously ill.

Buller organiser Kate McDougall said Light Up The Night allows skiers to buy a lantern then ski down the slopes of Bourke Street at night – lighting up the night.

“The $20 donation goes to the Leukaemia Foundation’s Light the Night walk to help cure leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma,” Ms McDougall said.

“Blood cancer research is expensive but vital…that’s why we are asking you to help raise $1.25 million for blood cancer research.”

On Mt Buller last week more than 150 skiers and snowboarders took advantage of skiing under lights and raised $3130 for cancer research.

Coinciding with Christmas week on Buller all those taking part in Light the Night, and in particular the children, sang carols while Father Christmas made an appearance on his skidoo.

“It was a really good turnout,” said Ms McDougall.
