As a locally owned independent small business, BPM knows the importance of giving back to our community. We’ve chosen Island Prostate Centre as our charity of choice, which we support throughout the year.
My family knows, first-hand, how important it is to have support when faced with a prostate cancer diagnosis. My husband, James, an avid mountain biker, has always been proactive about his health by staying active and making healthy nutritional choices (he’s a pescatarian). We knew that prostate cancer was in his family, but we were no less frightened when James was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2010. Island Prostate Centre is the place to go to find information and support when navigating the various treatment options for prostate cancer. Click here to see all of the IPC programs available.
BPM has chosen to support Island Prostate Centre by taking donations at Karma classes at our local spin studio so that men and their families can get the help they need. We were also active participants at the Raymond James Father’s Day Walk/Run by providing prizing for individual fundraisers. Even our instructors get in on community engagement – our BPM instructor Hannah volunteered her time at the run to lead the warm up for the participants! As a small business, don’t think that you can’t make a difference!
When caught and treated early, prostate cancer has a 90 – 95% survival rate! At BPM we encourage you to eat well, stay active and know your PSA numbers.
Yours in good health,
Sally Larrington-Brown (Owner)
