1. Raising Funds for World Class Research!
By participating in Project Hope you are helping raise funds and awareness for world class research, taking place in London, Ontario at the Bethanys Hope Foundation Leukodystrophy Laboratory. Under the direction of Dr. Tony Rupar, of Western University the Research team has made incredible strides in looking into a cure for Metachromatic Leukodystrophy (MLD). Clinical trials are in the foreseeable future. Now – more than ever – each dollar raised gets us one step closer to putting an end to this terrible disease

Project Hope is more than just your every day fundraiser. This is an all inclusive event that will be a celebration of those who support the Bethanys Hope Foundation.
