As a mother, I will never give up on my child. As a mother of a child who has autism, I will never give up hope.
I look into his eyes and I see all the potential that he has to offer to this beautiful world and I just know that one day the world can see what I see.

Connecting Marpole Day 2013

Choices Markets partnered up with Autism Speaks Canada and hosted a 12 day “Autism Speaks Puzzle Piece Campaign” in its Greater Vancouver Area stores to raise funds for Autism Speaks Canada. During the campaign, customers could purchase Autism Speaks Canada puzzle pieces in-store at the checkout for $1.00, with all proceeds benefiting the 6th Annual Vancouver Walk Now for Autism Speaks fundraising and awareness event, which takes place on September 29th, 2013 at Stanley Park.

To help raise additional funds, Choices Markets will be hosting a series of barbeques tomorrow at their Vancouver and Kelowna locations, with the exception of their Kerrisdale location, which will be participating in Connecting Marpole Day in lieu of the barbeque. Visit Choices Markets to find a store near you.

Connecting Marpole Day celebrates multicultural, intergenerational, and artistic diversity in the community. Local musicians and entertainers will perform throughout the day and their will be some activities for kids, and of course, bubbles!

Hope to see you there!
