18th Annual Whistler Balding for Dollars Event- Goes Virtual!

WILL STILL TAKE PLACE – VIRTUALLY

We are moving Whistler Balding for Dollars to a VIRTUAL event.  In self isolation or social distancing, we will be connecting to the world, raising awareness and funds for the sick children whose vulnerability has somehow escalated in this new reality, where the value of a strong immune system can be the difference between life and death.

How will we make it a virtual event you ask?  Just follow these simple steps to take part. Help us make the 2020 edition of Whistler Balding for Dollars a fantastic success for kids with cancer and their families living across British Columbia.

We are living in strange times indeed, and while the world of COVID-19 is changing by the hour, the fact that Childhood cancers are still running rampant is not. Imagine what the front door feels like today at the homes where a child inside is fighting cancer. Those families, in their fearful isolation and indestructible fight, need our help.

So join us on March 29th as we make a difference in the lives of some who need it the most.  Steps to follow to be involved:

  1. Click on Register To Shave button below, and complete your own online fundraising page.
  2. Send the link for your personal fundraising page to all our email contacts – family, friends, colleagues.  Post it on your social media.
  3. Watch the donations come in.
  4. Source a friend to help you shave – you will need a set of clippers, a towel and broom to clean up your locks off the floor!
  5. On March 29th, take a video of your hair farming, and post it to our facebook page
  6. Give yourself a pat on the back for doing something awesome!!!

2nd Annual Okanagan Balding for Dollars Event- Cancelled @ The Laurel Packinghouse
Apr 24 @ 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm

Okanagan 2020 posterMar. 19th, 2020 Update:  With this event 5 weeks away, and so much uncertainty with the evolving Covid-19 situation in BC, we are having to make another heartbreaking decision to cancel this event. If you have tickets to, or are signed up to participate in Bernie’s evening BBBB event, please stay tuned for information on that regarding a potential postponement or virtual event replacement.

A reminder that these families in BC that have kids with cancer, are in need of our programs support now and in the coming months more than ever. Isolation, proper hand washing, and quarantine is no new world to them, it is however a more heightened situation for them and their families as they have compromised immune systems and would be most severely affected if the situation escalates. So a reminder to do your part to help slow and stop the spread so we can all get back to what we love, and do best! We also understand that this is a hard time financially for so many in our province, but if you are able to provide any kind of support, we do appreciate it now more than ever. Thank you for your understanding and support.

21st Annual Balding for Dollars Main Event – cancelled (GOING VIRTUAL) @ BC Children's Hospital (courtyard between 1982, ACB & TACC Buildings- By Starbucks!)
May 9 @ 11:00 am – 4:00 pm

B4$ 2020 event posterApril 2020 Update: Yesterday we made the heartbreaking decision to cancel our Main Event scheduled for May 9th, 2020.

We waited as long as we could to make this decision in hopes that the Covid-19 situation may turn around quickly in our favour, but with the most recent projections given by our health minister, it looks like current measures being taken in our province will continue into May and possibly further.

Following all of our major events cancellations for the year, this is especially hard for us as it is our biggest event, which brings in the most funds crucial to sustaining our programs. We know it is the best decision, and really the only decision that had to be made as the people our programs help are among the most vulnerable populations right now. And it is crucial we ALL do our part to STAY HOME and reduce risks as much as possible.

BUT there are some silver linings! We know our community of support is strong and will come back with us stronger than ever for our 2021 events. we also know that there are people out there who CAN afford to continue to help those in need. We have seen some amazing good news stories despite all of the less positive and uncertainty.

SO, we are asking of you to do a few things if you can, especially knowing we will be down on funds and having to adjust some of our program offerings this coming year.

1. We WILL be hosting our event VIRTUALLY for those who are signed up to cut or shave & are fundraising currently. And we encourage those who still want to participate to please JOIN US! Sign up via this link: https://secured.bcchf.ca/registrant/EventHome.aspx…. We have the feeling many will be needing a fresh cut or shave over the next little while. You can even sign up to participate and fund raise without cutting or shaving your hair. Pages will remain open throughout all of 2020 so hopefully things will start to recover and it will get less hard financially, so more people can donate. More details on just HOW we will host virtually to come.

2. We are asking that you continue to engage with us on social media- share, like, comment- it is cost-less way to show your support and spread awareness. Who knows who might see it that could help us in a huge way!

3. We are asking that you tag our local media outlets and celebrities, preferably local or Canadian ones who might be touched to reach out with support if they are financially able, or just to share with their large fan bases. Again, you never know who it could reach!

Thank you all for your support!
