Scotland’s Yard is a new health care initiative established with the goal of enhancing children’s cancer care in Waterloo Region. Inspired by the courage of Scotland, a young girl facing a difficult cancer journey, a group of community members have come together to make the Scotland’s Yard vision a reality: a vision that every child and family in our community experiencing a cancer journey will have access to world class care close to home. Scotland’s Yard aims to raise $50 million over ten years to support Grand River Hospital and its pediatric cancer programs.

This year marks the 19th anniversary of the Bechthold Home Improvements & BW Geotextiles Childhood cancer Fundraiser. This year our annual fundraising BBQ on Thursday July 13th from 11am to 6pm. 


Each year, all expenses are paid by Bechthold Home Improvements & BW Geotextiles thus allowing every dollar raised to go directly to three leading childhood cancer care programs. Donations will be split between the 3 charities that we support:

  • Scotland's Yard (Grand River Hospital)
  • Children's Health Foundation (London's Children's Hospital)
  • Walk to Conquer Cancer (Princess Margaret Hospital)
