BIG SISTERS OF BC LOWER MAINLAND
Since 1960, Big Sisters has been fighting loneliness and helping to build resiliency in the over 800 youth we support each year through our three mentoring programs. Youth today need our support now more than ever with social pressures at an all time high and the on-going negative impacts of social isolation to their mental health and education. Your donation directly supports youth in achieving their full potential and provides Surrey youth on our waitlist the chance to be matched with a Big Sister and discover who they can become. Big Sisters is a proud non-profit partner of Run Surrey Run.
ABOUT CANADIAN BLOOD SERVICES
Together with donors, recipients, employees, partners and volunteers, we are Canada’s biological lifeline. Our role is to provide lifesaving products and services in transfusion and transplantation for Canadian patients and to safeguard Canada’s systems of life essentials in blood, plasma, stem cells, and organs and tissues.
In addition to blood donations, as a registered charity, we seek financial gifts from individuals and corporations to help us continuously improve and strengthen our national programs and services. Your support will help to advance research and innovations in clinical treatment and care.
