February 19-25

Wounded Warriors Canada helps Canadian Forces members, veterans, first responders, and their families, who have been wounded or injured in their service to Canada (primarily focusing on mental health, in particular, Operational and Post Traumatic Stress Disorders).  

The Wounded Warrior Run BC is a charity run that traverses the length of Vancouver Island each year to raise public awareness and financial support. The six-member team will relay run the entire length of Vancouver Island for seven consecutive days, February 19-25th. On Friday, February 23rd (Comox to Nanaimo) and then on Saturday, Friday 24th (Nanaimo to Mill Bay). Their goal this year is to raise over $100,000. 

The team will visit various Legions and community halls to raise awareness and you can see them on their route (here). If you can't make it, donate here
