How We Use Our Events to Work Towards Our Goal

THE JOSETTE BEDDELL MEMORIAL FOUNDATION IS MORE THAN JUST A WALK, OR A FUNDRAISING COMMITTEE, OR A SCHOLARSHIP DONATION.

This foundation stands to honor Josette and the many strong women and families like hers who have experienced lifelong changes because of this disease. As we move forward together in making a difference, we'd like to do it in honor of Josette and all those effected by cancer.

When someone you love is suffering from breast cancer, it’s hard to focus on anything else. That’s why we give the proceeds from the Wind Chime Ball and our community events directly to families in need. With some extra money to pay the bills or take a family daytrip together, they can forget about cancer for a little while.


By awarding financial grants to families in our community, we help ease the financial burden cancer creates and give them something more precious than money - a little worry-free time together.
