On-going Support for B-Strong

Thanks for all of your support and help to fund research to find a cure for brain cancer.  Your support continues to be critical.

All donations to B-Strong can be made here.

 

The 5th B-Strong walk took place in 2016. We are taking a timeout from events:

2016 marked the 11th anniversary of B-Strong and when Lindsay started this initiative to help others.  Since B-Strong started we delivered 5 B-Strong Bashes at Angus Glen and 5 B-Strong Walks at the Markham Museum.  To date, with your kind and generous help B-Strong has raised over $1M for brain tumour research.

 

The Town of Markham Announced in 2011:

We are delighted to announce that the Town of Markham Council unanimously approved the proclamation that April 22 be named B-Strong Day.  Approximately 1 year prior a close friend of Lindsay’s came up with this great idea.  The intent was not only to increase awareness but more importantly to take action to help others that day.  Since Lindsay was always about doing something for other people, we put together a list of suggested actions to assist others not as fortunate or facing challenges.

Possibilities for B-Strong Day :

  • Contact a friend who is ill, just to ask how they are.
  • Contact someone you haven’t spoken to in a while just to ask how they are.
  • Drive someone to a doctor’s appointment.
  • Buy a Lindsay Bear or B-Strong cap and give it to someone facing any sort of challenge.
  • Buy a Lindsay Bear or B-Strong cap and drop it by a hospital to be given to a young patient.
  • Make a donation to The B-Strong Fund to help those fighting brain tumours.
  • Contact any non-profit organization to see what you can to do help them.
  • Since it is also Earth Day, consider planting a tree, bush or flower in memory of someone.

 

There are times in life when one is faced with unpredictable challenges. In my case, it was a brain tumour. Challenges like these test one’s strength and courage, but most of all they test how one accepts and deals with these. The only way to deal with these is in a positive way. This experience has totally made me realize that with the right attitude and support, you can truly find a positive view for anything. Lindsay Bolger, 2005
