Wounded Warriors Run comes to Vancouver Island
The Wounded Warriors Run returns to Vancouver Island for the sixth year.
The relay-style run starts on February 25th in Port Hardy with athletes covering more than 600 kms in seven days until they reach the final destination at the BC Legislature in Victoria on March 3rd. Along the way, the team will stop at legions and communities to raise awareness and funds for the support that Wounded Warriors Canada offers.
Wounded Warriors Run Director, Jacqueline Zweng tells us who will benefit from the fund raising event.
"Their mission is to help our ill and injured veterans, first responders and their families who are struggling with operational stress injuries such as PTSD. Those funds go towards innovative, life-changing programs that are offered by Wounded Warriors Canada to help people who are struggling."
The goal is to raise $100,000 dollars for struggling service personnel.
