The BCCC sponsors several events annually to raise both awareness and funds to put an end to child sexual abuse in Southwestern Michigan. Visit this site often so you don’t miss out on your next opportunity to get involved.
Voices on the Veranda
Plan now to attend Voices on the Veranda scheduled annually in August. Held on the veranda at Whitcomb Tower, you will see views of the fountain, garden, and Lake Michigan that are simply spectacular. Be sure to find out what is planned every year since the theme is ever changing. Whether we auction Adirondack chairs painted by local artists, host a Hawaiian luau, or surprise you with something completely unexpected, you will find a way to lend your voice to our fight against child sexual abuse at this event.
Dine out to “Give Back”
Many of our local restaurants are joining us in our fight to end child sexual abuse. Periodically, they donate a portion of their proceeds on specific days to our cause. Watch for the next “Give Back” event at an area restaurant. Enjoy a delicious meal with friends or family, topped off with the equally delicious knowledge that you are helping victims on their journey to healing.
Volunteer at the Maytag Ironman 70.3 Steelhead Triathlon
This triathlon attracts hundreds of families to Southwest Michigan every year because there is so much for everyone to do while the race unfolds. Beginning on the beach, athletes swim 1.2 miles in the waters of pure Lake Michigan, then bike a course that winds through rolling hills dotted with wineries and orchards. The run course is shaded and always lined with volunteers. The race concludes on the beach, where families and friends can find plenty to entertain them until athletes finish the race.
Join us in supporting the athletes. The BCCC staffs a bike aid station and we need your help. You’ll enjoy a beautiful day outdoors and the excitement of an up-close view of one of the most grueling kinds of races. You may register to volunteer conveniently by clicking here.
