Organizations we support

A long time supporter of BC Cancer Foundation, Alex Blodgett has been serving on the Board of Directors since 2018. In the midst of that support tenure, he, his wife, and his five sons became intimately familiar with BC Cancer when he was diagnosed with Stage IV non-hodgkin’s lymphoma. With a very poor prognosis, the Blodgett’s developed a very deep and personal appreciation for the thoroughness, thoughtfulness, and professionalism of everyone at BC Cancer, and understand firsthand how research saves lives.

Alex has participated in the BC Cancer Foundation’s flagship cycling fundraiser (now known as the Tour de Cure) more than 10 times since 2012. In the summer of 2021, Alex raised an incredible $1mm for pediatric cancer research through a self-supported, multi-sport expedition ((dubbed the Circle of Hope) consisting of hiking, mountain biking, mountain climbing, and ocean rowing.
