A Wish To Wed: Event on Grouse Mountain
I recently was invited to be a part of a vendor networking event for A Wish To Wed, a non-profit organization that "grants the union of marriage celebrated through a wedding to those faced with a terminal illness". This event took place at Grouse Mountain in North Vancouver and is one of the top tourist destinations for locals and visitors alike.
I first heard about A Wish To Wed through my online research, and I signed up as a volunteer immediately.
A Wish To Wed is built on these core values: (directly from their website)
- We believe people should be able to get married when faced with a terminal illness;
- We believe in bringing joy and strength to people through a wedding celebration;
- We believe people are not defined by their illness.
The organization also has built many relationships within the local health care industry.
