Walk to End Bladder Cancer
FAQs

What Is the BCAN Walk to End Bladder Cancer?
The Walk to End Bladder Cancer is BCAN’s signature awareness event. These volunteer-driven events give voice to the many faces of bladder cancer: patients, survivors, caregivers, friends, family, and those who have lost a loved one to bladder cancer. What began in 2011 as a national Walk for Bladder Cancer has expanded to more than 25 locations across the county, engages more than 3,000 participants annually, and has raised more than $3.7 million toward bladder cancer education, awareness and research.

How does BCAN spend donations?
BCAN invests donor money wisely supports BCAN mission programs including the Bladder Cancer Think Tank, Patient Insight Webinars, the Conversations video series, printed educational materials, and bladder cancer research. For more information about BCAN programs and services, go to www.bcan.org.

What is the easiest way to submit checks for the walk to BCAN?
Mail checks directly to BCAN.  Download the donation form here.  Checks should be made payable to the Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network, 4915 St. Elmo Avenue, Suite 202, Bethesda, MD 20814.

Why is there a registration fee?
While the walk is an important event to raise awareness, it is also the only major fundraiser for the Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network. The registration fee supports the costs for the walk t-shirts, insurance, giveaways, technology, etc. and ensures that we can continue to fund important education, support and research programs.
