Sponsorship Opportunities


DID YOU KNOW?

In Canada, over 300,000 people are deaf, in BC, over 40,000...

...AND did you know that 3 million people in Canada have a severe hearing loss; 400,000 live in BC.  This is not necessarily an age related impairment - only 1/3 of all people with hearing loss are of retirement age.

It is a sad fact that 1 in 800 children are born deaf and 15% of school age children have some hearing loss. 

Recent studies have shown that in the past 10 years hearing loss for 2nd graders has increased by more than 280%; for 8th graders, by more than 400%.

We are extending to you a sponsorship opportunity - the Rotary Club of Vancouver annual Bike-A-Thon in support of the deaf and hard of hearing in British Columbia. The Bike-A-Thon, which is celebrating its 32nd Anniversary on Sunday, July 10, 2016, has raised $2.8 million for the RHF Hearing Foundation since its inception.
 
These funds have been used to support cochlear implant research at UBC and to establish the Rotary Hearing Centre at UBC Hospital and the Rotary Hearing Clinic at St. Paul’s Hospital. In   addition, grants have been made to BC Children’s Hospital, Children’s Hearing and Speech Centre of BC, The Hearing Foundation of Canada, the BC Family Hearing Resource Centre, the UBC School of Audiology & Speech Sciences and the Vancouver Hearing Centre to name just a few. 

Scroll down to see the benefits that will be extended to you as a Bike-A-Thon sponsor.
 
This is a highly anticipated and successful event that could not take place without the generosity of our donors. It is our sincere hope that you will consider supporting the Rotary Club of Vancouver’s RHF Hearing Foundation and I thank you in advance for your consideration of our request.
 
WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT TO BRING BACK THE SOUNDS OF LIFE!
