The holiday season at TWC has been going strong! On December 15th, clients from Together We Can were gifted with the opportunity to attend the Capilano Canyon Lights in celebration of the holiday season. The BC Fire Fighters Burn Fund made a generous donation of tickets for our men in treatment and anticipation lasted throughout the weekend leading up to Monday’s trip. With the support of TWC volunteers, our clients made their way to the Canyon Lights with cameras in hand and smiles abound. Extravagant burning lights enveloped the canyon as the men walked through a gorgeous display of carefully and artistically placed lights in nature’s hideaway.
One client had this to say about his experience at the event:
“To be clean and do something like this with my friends is different for me, but it’s a good different. I would have never done this or seen this in my addiction and it allows me to change how I see the world and other people. Sometimes we miss the beautiful things around us.”
Together We Can gives endless thanks to the BC Fire Fighters Burn Fund for providing these men in recovery not only a ticket, but an experience and an opportunity to change perspectives. This was an amazing time for everyone involved, and we look forward to much more of this in the future!
