This amazing therapy dog helps sick children at BC Hospice Canuck Place

They say a dog is a man’s best friend.

And it’s a sure thing that puppies bring tons of joy to owners and families. Now one puppy in particular, Poppy, is doing something incredible.

She’s taking part in activities for the Canuck Place Adventure Race that’s happening at Jericho Beach Park on September 17, to help raise funds for families of Canuck Place, BC’s Children’s Hospice.

So far, Poppy has kayaked with Laura, the recreation therapist. She then joined Canuck Place kids for a bike and trail run, where they used special trail runners and adaptive bikes, pulled or pedalled by their families, so everyone got to participate.

After this, Poppy took on the kids obstacle course, before joining other racers at the massage tent for some well-earned pats. She visits Canuck Place regularly with Dr. Hal to see the children and make they don’t get scared if he has to talk to their parents.

Now you can sponsor Poppy who is taking part in this year’s Canuck Place Adventure Race so she can help sick children at the hospice.

You’ll even get to see a video of her next training session when you donate and it’s going to be ridiculously cute. And since registration for the all-ages Adventure Race closed on September 10, this is an incredible way that you can support a great cause.

Canuck Place Children’s Hospice is BC’s pediatric palliative care provider. More than 715 children living with life-threatening illnesses and families receive care from CPCH through outreach programs and two provincial hospice locations: Vancouver and Abbotsford.

Services provided by the hospice include medical respite and family support, pain and symptom management, 24-hour phone consultation support and in-house clinical care, music, art and recreation therapy, education, grief and loss counselling, and end-of-life care.

You can help support BC’s pediatric palliative care provider simply by sponsoring Poppy’s adventure.
