Barbecue benefits Crohn’s and Colitis Canada

On Saturday, May 10, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., visit Campbell River’s M&M Meat Shop and support the M&M Meat Shops Charity BBQ Day in support of Crohn’s and Colitis Canada.

M&M Meat Shops’ franchisees, staff and thousands of volunteers from coast-to-coast will be manning their grills to meet the Charity BBQ Day fundraising goal of $1 million. Supporters will receive a hamburger or hot dog, a drink and a bag of chips for a minimum donation of $3. Proceeds raised help fund Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis medical research. Canadians have more reasons to be concerned about Crohn’s and colitis than anyone else in the world.

One in every 150 Canadians

suffer from Crohn’s and colitis, a rate that ranks in the highest worldwide.
