A beautiful summary of Canuck Place

This is a quote borrowed from a note from a long serving volunteer at canuck place:
"My time has been, very simply put, a wondrous life experience. Without a doubt , I am the one who has been blessed in so many ways in my contact with the parents, children and my fellow Volunteers.
As any of our Volunteer's can attest to, this experience is impossible to describe in a sentence or two. My summation would simply be the ; Children; family's; staff; volunteers; laughter; tears; death; talking; children; listening; hugs; costumes; kitchen; outings; children; smiles; and I could build great stories around all of those words.
The memories of a family & child inviting me to participate and share a few hours or days of their measured time remaining will always be a cherished piece of my life.”

The Blog

My name is Malcolm and I was a volunteer at Canuck Place Children's Hospice in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada for nearly seven years. Now I support them by raising money by participating in the Canuck Place Adventure Challenges!

I said hospice. Not really a word that you associate with children but there you go. We will tell you about the house as this blog progresses with the hope that you will learn, and as you learn we hope that you will share. The purpose of the Adventure Challenge is to raise money for AND awareness about Canuck Place.

The name of each kid at the house you read about has been changed.

September 14th and 15th are the dates for the next Adventure Challenges.

You can sponsor me for the race here: Adventure Challenge
Maybe you should do the race?


Just a quick note about the names of the kids in the house that you will read about: they are made up!
