Since its inception in 2007, BIGHORN Behind A Miracle (BAM) has assisted more than 100,000 local patients in their treatment of cancer.

BAM is dedicated to providing critical funding needed to help in the diagnosis, treatment, research, services and education for those affected by cancer. To date, the organization has donated over $13 million in support of Eisenhower Lucy Curci Cancer Center, The Pendleton Foundation, Desert Regional Comprehensive Cancer Center and Hanson House Foundation.

In 2023, BAM included Make-A-Wish Foundation helping grant local children with critical illnesses wishes come true. BAM has helped decrease the number of children waiting for their wishes. It is important and truly remarkable to see the excitement and healing a wish can bring

Through its BAM Van transportation service, BAM has given more than 46,000 rides to assist people, who would normally rely on public transportation, in getting to and from treatment.

This extraordinary fundraising feat is made possible through hard-working volunteers and generous donors who understand the importance of finding a cure for cancer while at the same time adding fun and flair to BAM’s exciting events.
