Annual Walk for Life
BPAC’s annual walkathon is a family-friendly fundraising event that takes place each spring. This is our 2nd largest fundraising event of the year and accounts for a significant portion of our annual budget. Please help us spread the word about this fun and exciting way to support the free programs and services provided at the Center. With the growth we are experiencing within this outreach, our fundraising goal must grow as well!
