Afterwards, we will meet for coffee at the Waves Coffee at 1858 Commercial Drive, corner of Commercial and 3rd

How do I get there?

From downtown Vancouver, catch the Skytrain to Commercial Drive Station and get off there. We will meet on East Broadway and Commercial, near the Skytrain station.

You can also catch a bus or drive there. Check your route details on Google Maps!

    Will the group photo of the participants be posted? I like to use these group photos in the updates I write to friends & family back in Ontario in which I explain what Alex & I are doing while here for cancer treatments.
