"I had an amazing experience volunteering at the camp! I had the opportunity to meet some incredible people who truly understand the meaning of community. They have come together to support one another and persevered to create this wonderful event. What an inspiring group of individuals!"
A lot of fun and so many interesting things to do - yoga, massage, railway museum, arts and crafts, walking, dancing, swimming, aquatics, games, singing, aromatherapy and more that I've forgotten. Great place to socialize with old friends and meet new ones.
BLAST 2011 turned out to be more than I had hoped for. We tried our best to produce a successful event. However, it was not just the fundraising, volunteer recruitment, nor the schedule of activities that developed into our magical camp...
It really took each and every person who participated. It felt like we were enclosed in a bubble of happiness, love, and caring for one another. I'm not sure we can recreate that, but we'll try. I have an inkling that those of us who attended our first BLAST will always have a special place in our hearts for Easter 2011.
We should all be proud to be "Building Life After Stroke Together" for stroke survivors. Please leave your comments so that we can strive towards an equally successful, if not better 2012.
