It’s almost Hayley’s 3rd birthday, I can’t believe she’s almost 3! As we do every year we are going to raise some money for Variety the Children’s Charity as a way of thanking them for their continued support throughout Hayley’s life. Recently Hayley was fitted with special inserts for her shoes to help her walk, the results were immediate. I’ve never seen her run so fast! For those of you that may not know Hayley was born 13.5 weeks premature, weighed only 1 pound 11.5 ounces and was 11 inches long. She is my hero and has beaten the odds from day one growing to be a healthy happy little girl who amazes me on a daily basis with her intellect and sense of humour.
When she was born I made a slideshow for my family to watch as they were unable to visit her in the NICU. You can watch that slideshow below but I’m told it makes people cry happy tears, you’ve been warned. In total Hayley spent 93 days in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) at Royal Columbian Hospital and then Surrey Memorial Hospital.
So how are we going to raise money this year? Surrey Beer Club of course! On February 21st join us at Big Ridge Brewing Co. in Surrey (5580 152nd street) for another super fun night of craft beer, good times and great people. The casks will be tapped at 5pm, if you’ve been to one of our events already you know the beer will be fantastic!
I’ve also set up a donation page where you can donate any amount you’d like to Variety BC. This event is free for anyone to attend but if you’d like to donate you can do so by buying a “ticket” at SurreyBeerClub.Eventbrite.com . There’s a fee that goes directly to Eventbrite.com for using their service but other than that 100% of the proceeds go to Variety BC, we aren’t doing this for profit, we’re doing it for Hayley 🙂
This was Hayley when she was born.
This is Hayley today, she’s such an amazing kid.
Join us and help support a great cause!
