Wounded Warrior Run
"When I'm on my feet, I'm off my meds."
- Jose Santiago, SPC US Army. Survivor.
Wounded Warriors Canada is a non-profit organization that helps Canadian Forces members who have been wounded or injured in their service to Canada. They help find therapeutic programs and solutions for military men and women in need. Currently, their primary focus is on mental health and, particularly, the staggering impact of PTSD and Operational Stress Injuries.
To provide increased financial support and public awareness for Wounded Warriors Canada, the “Wounded Warrior Run BC” (WWRBC) was created. A team of dedicated runners will relay run the length of Vancouver Island for six consecutive days, starting Sunday, 15 Feb 2015 and finishing Friday, 20 Feb 2015. The journey will begin in Port Hardy and end in Victoria at Saunders Subaru, covering an excess of 600 km.
Thanks to everyone for coming out to support today's leg of the run which started in Campbell River and went through the Courtenay Legion, Comox Legion, and Comox 888 Sqn RCAF Association between 2:00 and 4:00pm.
