Volunteer Shift

Thursday, May 09, 2013

Tonight, I am volunteering at a fancy gala that is a fundraiser for the B.C. Centre for Ability. This organization provides physical, occupational. speech therapy and vocational guidance plus more for physically and mentally disabled children. There is a huge waiting list. They provide vital early intervention programs for children.

This gala is set in one of Vancouver's beautiful hotels and honors 5 heroes who have been clients of the centre and have had great success. I am looking forward to being inspired by these heroes tonight as I hear their stories and wonderful, courageous journeys.

I know that there are many Sparkpeople heroes on this site too!

It is so nice to get dressed up fancy for an evening and not be self-conscious about my weight. So very freeing and it allows me to totally focus outside myself and on the job at hand.
