Spring Yard Cleanup Online Fundraising Page!
In lieu, of our Spring Yard cleanup this year due to COVID 19 we have set up this online page instead. If you are willing and able to support us this way it would be greatly appreciated. COVID 19 has really cut down on the Cancer Societies ability to raise money to fund much needed research across Canada. We are hoping to tally all of our donations by 5:00pm on May 2, 2020 and will inform everyone of the grand total.
Last year with help from sponsors we were able to raise over $325,000 in one day and blow through the $1,000,000 in 10 years target we had set. This was almost $50,000 more than our fundraising amount from 2018! We raised $113,477 in donations and the sponsors added an additional $210,000!
We would like to inform you that all money raised goes straight to Cancer Research and all money raised is 100% profit as we continue to believe that fundraising dollars should be spent on the cause vs advertising or admin costs of the cause!
Last year the money we raised money to support Dr Mick Bhatia and his team and McMaster University in Hamilton. He is studying the effects of an alternate drug in the treatment of leukemia cancer. For more info please visit this page. http://www.cancer.ca/en/about-us/news/national/2017/november/banner/?region=on.
This year we hope to fund a Colon Cancer Research program in Ontario, in memory of a recent loss in our community. We are still working with the Canadian Cancer Society to pick the research program. More info will come out in regards to this.
We would like to kindly ask if you can to support this worthy cause in any way you can. COVID 19 has really cut down on the Cancer Societies ability to raise money to fund much needed research.
Thanks for your help,
Spring Yard Cleanup Committee
