As many of you know I am a torch bearer in the Paralympic Torch Relay with thanks to Coca Cola!
My leg of the relay will be this coming Thursday, March 11th sometime between 3:00PM – 4:30 PM on/near Robson Street, downtown Vancouver. I will be given an exact time/location the day before and I will try to send out a follow-up email – it will also be posted on the VASS website – www.vass.ca.
For anybody who is coming out to support this (thank you!), we will be meeting afterwards at Cafe Barcelona (1049 Granville St @ Nelson) to celebrate ~ 6:00 PMish. Come meet my Mom!
The magnitude of this once-in-a-lifetime experience is yet to come I am sure – but I am completely honoured to be carrying the torch on behalf of VASS and all the people I have been blessed to know and been inspired by over the years in my work/volunteer involvements. Among other good things, this flame represents the light within us to be the best that we can be regardless of our abilities.
I hope you will support the Paralympics by going to some events. Below is a link to a short video produced by the International Paralympics Committee – http://www.vancouver2010.com/paralympic-games/videos/spirit-in-motion_303972g174122-oy.html.
I’m proud to be a part of the Paralympics movement!
GO CANADA GO!
