Bladder Cancer Canada Awareness Walk 2020
On behalf of the 80,000 Canadians living with a bladder cancer diagnosis, thank you so much, for your commitment and support of our 2020 walk, during a year when we know that giving (and motivation) was difficult.
It’s no secret. Many charities are struggling with fundraising this year and “more than 70% of charities in Canada are expecting to raise less money in 2020,” according to the Association of Fundraising Professionals.
This year, your support was more important than ever before.
At Bladder Cancer Canada, we recognized the need to change the format of our Awareness Walk early on – from in-person events to a month-long campaign of virtual activities. Collectively, and despite much uncertainty and hurdles, we rallied hard to raise funds to support patients, increase awareness and fund research.
In the weeks leading up to September, as hundreds of Canadians collected thousands of donations and followed through by walking in their own “back yards”, we watched our numbers climb.
In a year when so many charities have struggled to raise funds, we were able to raise more than $430,000. That’s impressive and it’s thanks to supporters, volunteers, donors and walk participants, that we were able to accomplish what we have so far.
