Thank you to BlueShore Mother’s Day Run 2019 for supporting Linden’s wish! A hospital stay for a child is a hard thing. In Linden’s case, his parents took turns being by his bedside while the six-year-old endured four months of treatments for lymphoma. Linden’s treatment also meant time away from his sister, Keira. After all of that, Linden’s granted wish to go to Disneyland represented more than just a fun opportunity to enjoy the California sunshine, rides and storybook characters. His wish was a chance for his family to be together. Adding to the magic, Linden was given the honour of opening the gates to the park for the day, as Mickey Mouse himself looked on! Thank you to the BlueShore Mother’s Day Run Vancouver participants and organizers for granting Linden’s wish! Linden’s memories of unlocking Disneyland and spending much needed time with his family.
Make A Wish BC and Yukon is the Official Charity of the BlueShore Mother's Day Run. Thanks to the contributions of the participants and the race organizers, the event grants at least one WISH. Our most recent recipient has been announced and it is Jackson who wished to go to Hawaii!
Thank you to the BlueShore Financial Mother’s Day Run for supporting Jackson’s wish! “Jackson had a wonderful time in Hawaii. He really enjoyed all the different pools and hot tubs, and his swimming has come a long way in a short time! He enjoyed playing in the sand at the beach, sunset walks and seeing large sea turtles swimming in a nearby bay. We went on a helicopter tour of the island as well, and he really enjoyed it. Our taxi driver gave Jackson a stuffed whale which is now his favourite. On the way home, Jackson got to make an announcement on the airplane ... and he became fast friends with one of the flight attendants. He saw the cockpit and met the pilots on both our flights and he enjoyed seeing all the buttons. Overall, he felt very special on the trip. Everyone knew his name and treated him like royalty, and it made it so much more special. Chris and I want to thank you for making this trip possible. It was lovely to make memories on an actual vacation, where he could just be a kid and not also a patient. We couldn’t have done it without you.” - Ashly, Jackson’s mom
It is shaping up to be a great Mother's Day Run!
