Making a difference: How research and walking or cycling for bladder cancer go hand in hand 🤝
See how our virtual walk will continue to support patient support, awareness & research. We’re also announcing this year’s research grant recipients!
Newsletter Highlight: Show your support in a difficult year – and know it’s in good hands!
The 12,000 Canadians who will be diagnosed with bladder cancer this year need our support – and the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic have intensified that need. Bladder Cancer Canada (BCC) continues to offer support and resources when it’s needed most, but we can’t do it without your help. Please consider how you can get involved in the BCC Awareness Walk to help us achieve our $600,000 goal, allowing us to increase patient support, raise awareness and fund research for years to come.
If you have not registered to walk due to your own personal circumstances, we understand! There are other ways to support the walk. You might consider making a donation or bidding in our Silent Auction at www.BCCwalk.ca. You could even forward this newsletter to some of your contacts, with a personal message explaining why BCC is important to you. If you’re on Facebook, you’ve probably noticed that personal fundraisers are rising in popularity – they’re another simple way for people to share causes close to their heart, while asking friends and family for support.
We also recognize that this is a difficult financial year for many, as we navigate the on-going pandemic, so we understand that Canadians are giving careful consideration to their charitable giving. In 2019, Charity Intelligence Canada reviewed sixty Canadian cancer-related charities, and Bladder Cancer Canada was among only four that received the 4-star ranking! Corporate sponsors and individual donors can feel confident that when they give to BCC, their funds will be used in a responsible, transparent and impact-focused way. (Read the full story here).
However you choose to show your support, we are always grateful for your efforts – and so are the 80,000 Canadians living with bladder cancer today.
