As Variety BC enters its 52nd year, its humbling and awe-inspiring history provides them with the foundation needed to be bold and innovative, as they look forward with renewed enthusiasm and excitement for the next half century of helping families and children with special needs.
From mental wellness or mobility program grants, to specialized therapies, education programs, and lifesaving medical equipment and supplies, Variety helps BC kids. There are the iconic Sunshine Coach vans, and vital the Surrey Memorial NICU, just to name a few ways Variety is there for BC families, time and time again.
