BOULDER, Colo. — September is childhood cancer awareness month, and Boulder-based Bobo’s is aiming to raise awareness and funds by selling a special oat bar that benefits families dealing with medical emergencies.
Bobo’s will donate 30 percent of sales of its new limited-edition Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip oat bar — that’s $5 from every $14.95 box of six — to There With Care, a local nonprofit that helps with things like transportation, groceries and meals when a family is dealing with a medical crisis.
Bobo’s has partnered with There With Care since 2016 and the company was inspired to produce the special oat bar by the Buck family, whose son Thomas was a fan of Bobo’s and lost his fight with brain cancer at just 4 years old.
“We are humbled by this partnership, which will have a far-reaching and immeasurable impact helping families with children facing critical illness,” Cate Buck said. “When our son was diagnosed with a brain tumor at age 2, There With Care came into our lives with support and bought us precious time with Thomas. Without this help, we wouldn’t have been able to pull through.”
