This is a short 2.5min video produced by the co-op student BFO had to help with the Walk to Remember 2020.

Please help Eric Davidson raise funds for BFO Durham by supporting him during his 1 million meter row.

1 Million Meter Row Challenge. I am performing a 1 million meter row challenge to raise money for BFO – Durham, to be completed by 24th December 2020 (Approx. 22 weeks) averaging 45,000 meters (42,195 is a marathon) per week to meet this challenge. I started 15 weeks ago and I am currently at 854,835 meters( updated as 01-Nov). BFO – Durham supports hundreds of families struggling to cope with the loss of a loved one, without any government support. If you could sponsor me for $1, $2, $10 or more per 100,000 meters it would be greatly appreciated and 100% of all money raised will be going to a great cause.
Week 15 - Rowed 854,835 145,165 to go.

BFO Durham Online Silent Auction for the Walk to Remember 2021

So much has changed in the last year with the Covid 19 pandemic challenging our daily routines and sense of normal.  This is nothing new for those familiar with BFO where a new normal is what the programs and facilitators are assisting those dealing with loss, try to achieve.

With social gatherings off the table for this year a few of our members felt there had to be some way to assist because the tragedy of loss does not stop just because there is a pandemic.

Thankfully, even with the economic challenges of the shutdown, our sponsors have still come to our aid and provided items for our Walk to Remember Online Auction. 

Virtual events cannot match the exhilaration of spending time with our BFO-Durham friends as we enjoy each other’s company, and most importantly for a lot of us…((Hugs)), but the virtual realm is at least giving us the opportunity to continue to raise much needed funds to help BFO Durham be there for those in need.

We can’t emphasize enough our appreciation for the dedication of our sponsors as well as the individual donations under such difficult circumstances.  With businesses shut down and a lack of a clear path forward it speaks to the quality of people we are so lucky to have in our community.

Our auction will go live at 12noon on Sunday February 28th and will be available until 6pm on Sunday March 7th 2021.

The link to our auction site is: and the items for auction will be ready for viewing by mid-February.

Successful bidders will be able to pay for and collect their items as of Monday March 8th from the office, but PLEASE phone the office to arrange a suitable time.
