Ride Hard. Smile Often.
Together, we can help Canuck Place children and families Smile Often too.
Canuck Place is BC's pediatric palliative care provider and supports children with life-threatening illnesses through respite for the entire family, pain and symptom care, 24-hour province-wide family support, art, education, music and recreation therapy, bereavement counselling, and end-of-life care.
This year, we have decided to dedicate our fundraising efforts to supporting the Recreation Therapy program at Canuck Place. Recreation therapy helps kids live in the moment and experience the everyday activities that make being a child exciting and fun. The Recreation Therapists at Canuck Place facilitate a range of activities from arts and crafts to making the big things accessible, like getting a child who uses a power chair onto a zip-line or working with a local pumpkin patch to get medically fragile children onto a horse-drawn hayride for the very first time. The Recreation Therapists make possible for Canuck Place children the activities that we might otherwise take for granted and bring smiles to their faces when smiles are difficult to come by.
Together, let's raise at least $5520 - that covers four months of Recreation Therapy at Canuck Place and creates a LOT of smiles.
Every donation counts!
Thank you for your support and your generosity!
