Childhood Cancer Donation Day Fundraiser
We face the challenges of a temporary pandemic but children continue to fight cancer daily!
This year marks the 17th anniversary of the Bechthold Home Improvements & BW Geotextiles Childhood Cancer Fundraiser. Even though it's still not possible to hold a BBQ this year we will be having another donation day on Thursday July 15th from 9am to 6pm.
Without the strong and sustained backing of community members, business donors and our amazing volunteers, this event could not have grown to the size and scope it is today. Seventeen years ago, we had a vision of raising funds to support families impacted by childhood cancer. With a single barbeque, a couple of coolers, a sun umbrella, and a lot of heart, our Childhood Cancer BBQ was born. That single barbeque is now several industrial grills operated by many volunteers and that umbrella is now several party tents and more than a dozen picnic tables.
Each year, all expenses are paid by Bechthold Home Improvements & BW Geotextiles allowing every dollar donated to go directly to three leading childhood cancer care programs.
According to the Canadian Cancer Society, childhood cancer is the most common form of disease-related death for children in Canada. Childhood cancer isn't the same as cancer in adults, growing and spreading faster and affecting different organs, it threfore requires care and treatments focused on the special needs of children.
We've created this Personal Fundraising Page in support of Children's Health Foundation. Please make a donation to our page and help us save and improve kids' lives. All the funds we raise will help kids and their families who rely on Children's Hospital at London Health Sciences Centre, Thames Valley Children's Centre and Children's Health Research Institute.
