Where the proceeds go:
Since our launch BFA has established numerous community partnerships that help generate funds to support our initiatives.
SUPA Society's Surfs Up sponsored by Rip Curl Canada is an annual surf camp that takes place in beautiful Tofino, BC. The event brings together children and families living with Autism to enjoy a free 2-day surfing camp. Each year we are contributing gas card sponsorship to 48 families travelling from across BC and Alberta to take part.

We are very proud of “The Bikers For Autism & Music Heals Music Therapy Studio” at the Pacific Autism Family Network in Richmond, BC. Our good friends at ET Music Therapy run the programs at this state-of-the-art studio “based on one simple principle: music is one of the most motivating and effective mediums for building strong connections with individuals with diverse needs.”

In 2017 we launched our own respite program. “A Moment To Breathe” provided families with a much-needed weekend trip away. We include overnight care for the children while their parents enjoy relaxing spa days, romantic dinners, and a night out on the town. We also host an afternoon at Nat Bailey Stadium with 100+ members of the local autism community coming together to watch the Vancouver Canadians baseball game.
