It seems that everyone has in some way been touched by cancer. As you know, I lost Sheldon - my oldest brother, to cancer over 9 years ago. In his memory and in an effort to support research battling this terrible disease, I participate in an impactful annual fundraising event.
I’m raising money in support of the Gentle Ben Charity Challenge. Founded by Steven and Michael Pearl and named in honour of their father, Ben Pearl, the event continues to celebrate his memory by raising funds to help battle the disease that took his life at an all too early age.
Since its inception in 1997, the Gentle Ben Charity Challenge has raised over $1.6 million, all of which has gone to support several cancer research and support programs, with recent emphasis on supporting the ground breaking efforts of the McEwen Stem Cell Institute, based in Toronto.
Your support would be very much appreciated!
