I have a personal attachment to a Children’s Hospital in another province as I grew up with three siblings who spent a lot of time there with my mother.
As we lived outside of the city, my father and I spent countless nights sleeping in the car, patiently waiting while my mother and siblings were upstairs in the hospital. I can still remember laying in the trunk of our station wagon, gazing up at the vibrant lights of the city. I understand from my mother that she and the children were always very well-treated and helped by very kind, patient individuals.Â
Fast forward a lifetime later, living in Kamloops and a mother of two children myself. I have come in contact with several children (and their families) who have had their lives changed forever at BC Children’s Hospital. The only pediatric facility of its kind in British Columbia, for many children, it becomes a permanent fixture in their lives until they reach adulthood. Support of BC Children’s Hospital is required for the purchase of urgently needed equipment and to fund research into childhood disease. You can show your support by supporting the athletes participating in WOD for Kids.
