Bike Blade Board 4 Blake is an event in memory of our eighteen year old son, Blake Garvey, who we lost on February 21st 2013 to the disease of Addiction. Blake suffered with anxiety and depression and turned to drugs to suppress the effects of these mental health issues. The pledges solicited and collected by participants help to fund programs offered through Durham Mental Health Services and Bereaved Families of Ontario.
The event is intended to help raise awareness of mental health and addiction in our community. It is also an opportunity to raise awareness of the support and services available at Bereaved Families of Ontario, Durham. Donations will go to each of these organizations. There will be a BBQ, guest speakers and many draws for prizes.
All participants must register with their pledge sheets or purchase a ticket for $25.00, and will be entered into the draws for prizes. We are grateful to all of our sponsors and event participants in helping to raise awareness about mental health and addiction and also support services available for those of us on this never ending journey of child loss.
In the last 3 years we raised $27,811 due to such amazing support and we thank you in advance for your generous support this year.

A BFO member, Anna Moreino, is planning a Fun Art Paint Party as a fundraiser for BFO Durham Region on Saturday, March 30th at 2 o'clock. The cost is $45.00 and $20.00 will go directly to BFO. Please call the office to register for this afternoon of fun. Please feel free to bring a friend! The image has not yet been decided however it maybe a butterfly, dragon fly but definitely something that we as bereaved parents can relate to.
