16th Annual Childhood Cancer Fundraiser
What a difference a year makes. So much has changed but the one thing that hasn’t changed is the children with cancer.
This year marks the 16th anniversary of the Bechthold Home Improvements & BW Geotextiles Childhood Cancer Fundraiser. Even though this year we are unable to welcome the community with food, we are still able to welcome the community through social distance visits to support an amazing organization fight to end childhood cancer.
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. Sixteen 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 volunetters 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 dealth 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.
