Thanks to all our generous sponsors, hard-working volunteers and loyal customers for another hugely successful herring sale! This brings the total raised over the past five years to more than $550,000 for kids who are being treated for cancer at BC Children's Hospital.
Cancer kills more kids aged 1 to 19 years old than any other disease. Survival rates for many pediatric cancers have improved dramatically in the last 20 years, but some kids’ cancers, along with late-detected cancers, are very difficult or are impossible to cure.
The best thing about the herring sale is that 100% of the money goes to the kids.
We have the privilege to consult with doctors and oncology staff to find out which programs, activities and items not funded by the hospital are most needed. This helps us ensure that funds can go quickly and directly to improving the quality of life of kids with cancer.
