McMaster Children’s Hospital & Juravinski Cancer Centre
In 2010 and again in 2011, U.S. President Barack Obama proclaimed September ‘Childhood Cancer Awareness Month’ in recognition of the large number of children diagnosed with cancer. The initiative is well-recognised in the U.S. but far less so in Canada, where approximately 1,500 children are diagnosed each year.

The StrikeOut Cancer! Bowling Day is our contribution towards promoting September as Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. It is a family-oriented fundraiser for both hospitals, the Sian Bradwell Endowment Fund purchasing vital medical equipment for McMaster Children’s and the Ken Bradwell Endowment Fund doing likewise for the Juravinski Cancer Centre and Hospital. Donations are accepted on site and online.
