First September Dragon Boat Festival A Great Success!
My name is Darrell Poirier. On November 14th, 2014 my wife Melissa and I, along with our son Liam were very excited to welcome our newest addition to our family, Colten. Or as we call him, Coco.
Colten came to us without any complications, but as Melissa was snuggling her beautiful new baby, she noticed a small scab on the back of his head. Little did we know, this would be the start of his battle with the ever so stubborn and rare Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis (LCH). At 4 weeks, another scab appeared on his neck. Then, by 8 weeks old, his torso was covered front to back.
WPG CYCLE: Spinning For A Dream!
This year marked the first annual September Dragon Boat Festival hosted by The Dream Factory and the Manitoba Paddling Association. It was a roaring success. As hundreds of people, from all walks of life, descended upon the river bed, teams of paddlers took to the “sea” in support of making dreams come true.
This January, local entrepreneurs and owners of WPG Cycle Christy Weiss and Jamie Murray decided that they wanted to make a difference. They were going to make a dream come true.
Christy and Jamie strive every day to build a community that is safe, inclusive, and positive. It was nothing short of destiny when they learned that there was a little girl out there dreaming of finding exactly that: community.
