The Bradley McPherson Memorial Cruise/Cannonball Run
- August 23, 2020
This year we are hosting a Cruise/Cannonball Run, thru the Fraser Valley. There are lots of prizes to be won. Join us at 10:00am at the Colossus Theatre parking lot on August 23, 2020. See poster on HOME page for details. Brad had a love for cars all his life; I believe it started with his first Hot Wheel. But as he grew up and owned several vehicles of his own his favorite pass time was to attend the many Car Shows and Events in our Community. His last ride a 1980 GMC Short Box he called “Emma” the truck you all see in the pictures and flyers was his pride and joy. Brad loved to drive, sometimes to fast and he loved to leave his mark (thus being the name of this show BurnOuts) ….. all in safe environments.As in the quote from his good friend Jessy Flynn….Like Rubber to Asphalt You Left your Mark. So I figured what better way to celebrate and Honor my son but to throw him his own Show and Shine.
So a special fund was set up to collect all the proceeds from this car show. This event is completely Non-Profit all funds are place in the Bradley McPherson Memorial Scholarship Fund and each year we donate one or more scholarships to a deserving local high school graduate student. As well we have used the proceeds from our 50/50 draws to support Children's Hospital Neo-Natal division.
We have also been able to sponsor a child in their assessment needs at a reputable private facility to with a licensed diagnostician. The child was finally assets and it was discovered he did have Autism, so they now will may be able to get all the government funding and help they so need. This was something new we did last year in 2018. We hope to continue helping in this avenue as well.
In 2013 a Scholarship fund was set up in Memory of Bradley McPherson. It is called the Bradley Memorial Scholarship Fund.
As we have grown this Non-Profit Organization for the Bradley McPherson Memorial Scholarship fund. Proceeds we raise from this Show and Shine will be awarded as a scholarship to deserving students. Senior Secondary Schools are chosen all over the Lower Mainland.
The scholarships are awarded to students this who have overcome the curricular adversities of learning with ADHD or ADD to attain graduation and diploma. We offer this Scholarship in Brad's memory. Just ours and Brad’s way to tell these deserving students congratulations Grad, everyone deserves a chance.
Note... to date 2019 we have given 10 scholarships.
