On March 28, 2019, 11 year old Broderick Burkhart-Thorne lost his young life in a tragic ATV accident in the remote community of Cortes Island, British Columbia.

Broderick is survived by his parents, Misty and Curtis, as well as 4 siblings, who are reeling with the shock of this devastating accident, and the loss of their beloved son, and brother. 

Our Humble Ask >>>

The small but vibrant community of Cortes Island has moved quickly to provide immediate support for the Burkhart-Thorne family by setting up a Meal Train campaign .  In line with this, we have also set up this campaign to provide immediate and future financial support for the myriad of expenses that will arise. 

Where The Funds Raised Will Go >>>

> Healing and restorative support for the family, including food costs and loss of income

> Funeral costs for Broderick

The Burkhart-Thorne family is coping with a traumatic loss, and they need the energy and support of their community to ease the unbelievable pain they are experiencing. We feel it is our sacred responsibility to do whatever we can to support Misty, Curtis and their 4 children, now and into the future, which includes asking for your help.

Please consider financially contributing to the Burkhart-Thorne family,  and/or consider sharing this campaign with your loved ones via email and social media channels.

We are incredibly grateful for your generosity and support during this difficult time. Thank you <3

The incident was reported in the Campbell River Mirror >>>

"A family member and a neighbour found him pinned underneath an off-road vehicle on Thursday, said Cpl. Sean Bulford of the Quadra Island RCMP detachment, which is responsible for Cortes Island.

“By the time he was found – they went looking for him, and he was deceased,” said Bulford."

There is no amount of money that can bring my boy back. There is no amount for money that can ease the pain. There is no amount of money that can make this right.

We laid him to rest in a quiet peaceful place. We had a celebration of his life for all to shear. We put our best foot forward to keep living each day even though our home is quiet and sad these days.

We see him in our kitchen doing dishes. We see him cuddling the kitties in the morning. We see him with the Chickens each evening. We see him being the light of our home.

We miss his bright smile every morning. We miss constant chatter every day. We miss his bounce back personality. We miss our son so very much.

To our family friends and neighbors we are truly thankful. To everyone who helped we are truly thankful. For gods love that has held us through we are truly thankful. For the gift of having our son for nearly 12 years we are truly thankful for.

Now we must be strong. Now we must move forward. Now we must rebuild our lives. Now we must learn to find our way.

Each dollar that has been given is being put to finishing our home. Wash dollar that is given goes Finnish his dream of a family home. Each dollar that is given will bring some happiness to his brothers and his sister. Each dollar that is given will never be forgotten.

Thank you is not enough. There are no words to say. Though we are heartbroken and sad we are so very blessed by each and everyone and that is you and you and you.
