SEPTEMBER IS CHILDHOOD CANCER AWARENESS MONTH
BMW/DelVal Club Welcomes B+ Heroes to
For the second year in a row, the generous members of the Delaware Valley Chapter of the BMW Car Club of America are hosting B+ Heroes at NJ Motorsport Park on August 23rd. The kids and their families will have rides in the race cars, followed by lunch at the track. Club members host a banquet and auction, which raises money for B+. This year they will be presenting B+ with a $15,000 donation!
High School Students Fight Cancer Too
We're so proud to have partnered with a long list of high schools this year who have organized dance marathons, a volleyball tournament, and a bonfire to raise money to fight childhood cancer. Here's a list of the high schools so far this year: Charter School of Wilmington, Appoquinimink HS, St. Georges HS, Wilmington Friends School, Tatnall School, Sanford, Tower Hill, Brandywine HS, Bernegat HS and Archmere Academy.
B+ Research Grants Yield Results
- Funding from B+ has supported clinical trials at the Seattle Children's Ben Towne Center for Childhood Cancer Research where they currently have 4 patients in remission from a recurrence of ALL.
- An article appeared in the January 2013 issue of Pediatrics, the journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics, about some exciting work being done by Dr. Ken Lucas and his team. Please take a look at this work as featured in a Medical News Today article. As you'll see, The B+ Foundation was a lead funder of this research, along with Solving Kids Cancer and the Pierce Phillips Charity.
