One of the objectives of the BC MBA Games is to promote the spirit of volunteerism within the wider community by working with individuals and groups who engage in the philosophy of a community fellowship and are willing to give their time and resources to initiating the second BC MBA Games. The spirit of giving extends to partners and friends of the Games who come on board; corporate sponsors and donors are asked to come on board because they believe in the ethos of the Games. We would like to extend this relationship to community partners in both private business and not for profit sectors.
The provincial Community Partner selected for the BC MBA Games 2016 is Childhood Cancer Canada. All fundraising prior to the BC MBA Games will be donated to this organization.
Over 10,000 children in Canada are heroically battling childhood cancer today. Cancer in kids is mostly found in the blood brain and bones and is deadlier than any other disease. Yet only 3% of all cancer research funds in Canada go specifically into childhood cancer research. Childhood Cancer Canada helps fund Canada’s best life saving childhood cancer research. The organization provides vital programs for children struggling with cancer. These include a ‘scholarship program’ for childhood cancer survivors, informational ‘empower packs’ directly to the doors of newly diagnosed kids, and arrange connectivity programs for families living with childhood cancer across Canada.
