19th Annual Childhood Cancer Fundraising BBQDonate To This Campaign
This year marks the 19th anniversary of the Bechthold Home Improvements & BW Geotextiles Childhood Cancer Fundraiser. This year our annual fundraising BBQ on Thursday July 13th from 11am 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. Nineteen 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 three 20’ x 30’ 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 therefore requires care and treatments focused on the special needs of children. We have been very fortunate that childhood cancer has not touched our family. Since we are one of the lucky ones, we feel that we should help others that are or have been affected.
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 with cancer 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.
