Slightly damp weather didn't make for damp spirits at the 5th Annual Vancouver Area Rare Disease Foundation Family Picnic and BBQ.
On August 18th over 100 members of the rare disease community from all over the Lower Mainland and beyond came together to enjoy one another's company at Burnaby Village Museum for the 5th Annual Vancouver Area Rare Disease Foundation Family Picnic and BBQ. This annual event has seen incredible growth over the past 5 years as the community has found one another through both the bricks and mortar Vancouver Parent 2 Parent Resournce Network and through the Rare Disease Foundation growing web presence.
Many thanks to the generous volunteers who made this event happen, both before and during the event. Volunteers made sure we knew who was coming and that we had enough food for the event. Our cake designer, Angela's Delicious Designs added to the ambience with her wonderful cake, and of course Amanda Calliou lent us her wonderful talents to provide event photography.
