Wheels of Hope
The Wheels of Hope campaign is part of the Bluewater Unit’s annual fundraising campaign. The program runs year round as the need for funding never stops.
The money raised funds the society’s transportation program.
In 2011, 126 local volunteer drivers made 4,634 trips to cancer-related appointments for 284 local clients and a total of 745,999 kilometers travelled. As well, we were able to offer financial assistance to families whose child was being treated for cancer at local hospitals and in Toronto, Hamilton, London.
The Bluewater Unit reimbursed volunteer drivers and families over $213,000. The Canadian Cancer Society is a national community-based organization of volunteers whose mission is the eradication cancer and the enhancement of the quality of life of people living with cancer.
