The Final B-Strong Bash.

After 15 years of B-Strong, 10 years since Lindsay passed and 10 events, we thought long and hard and decided to do a final event.  We want to bring together those who generously supported B-Strong over these years for a fun night to celebrate.

2020 marks the 15th 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 support, B-Strong has raised over $1.1M for brain tumour research.  Thanks for all of your 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.

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

The 5th B-Strong walk took place in April of 2016. This raised a record $110K for this single afternoon event.  

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 others, 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.
