As our journey continues, we are donating to organizations that would be near and dear to Chris.  The following are the 2019 recipients of the donations received by the Christopher Burch Memorial Fund:

St. Baldrick’s Foundation

The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a volunteer-powered charity committed to funding the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long, healthy lives.

Special Olympics Polar Plunge (Pittsburgh, PA)

The Polar Plunge is a unique opportunity for individuals, organizations, and businesses to support local Special Olympics athletes by jumping or running into icy cold waters. Plunge participants take a quick dip in a river or pool to raise funds for Special Olympics Pennsylvania, the state’s largest year-round organization devoted to sports training and competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.

This year there are nine Plunges statewide to choose from. Jumping into icy cold water really not your thing? You can still participate and show your support by making a pledge to a braver soul. Join us and be “Freezin’ for a Reason” – Take the Plunge!

Lucky Day Care Rescue

Lucky Day Animal Rescue of Colorado (LDAR) serves the public as a 501c3 tax exempt, non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue of homeless and abandoned animals in Colorado and surrounding areas. We rescue, rehabilitate and find forever homes for animals at risk, regardless of age or breed, issue or amount of time needed that is within our means, in conjunction with providing educational services and spay/neuter programs to the community.

The Unforgotten Haven

The Unforgotten Haven is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to help the less fortunate. We work in partnership with churches and other community organizations. All of our services are provided without charge.

Most of the Unforgotten Haven’s services and donations are used in our local community. However, our services are not county-based or state-based. We help wherever there is need. This includes conducting hurricane relief missions to Louisiana, North Carolina, and Florida.
