Fundraising for Children of Fallen Soldiers

By: Heather @ 2:57 pm

A message from Joe Gagnon

Over the years I have helped organize or participate in a number of different charitable events. Recently, I was approached by a colleague to get involved in something that I felt was not only very unique but very important. We have all watched “The National” on CBC or “Coaches Corner” on Hockey Night in Canada where we all too often would see the pictures of young men and women who have lost their lives in the war in Afghanistan. Whether we agree with the mission or not, we can all agree that it is horrible to see these young lives cut so short. Many of these soldiers are in their 20s and 30s and leave behind very young children,  of which many of them are under the age of 10.

We organized a once in a lifetime athletic challenge to help the children of these soldiers. 100% of the proceeds raised in this event will go to Canada Company, a nonprofit organization that sets up post secondary scholarship funds for the children of fallen soldiers.

We will be embarking on a 7 day journey starting in Toronto and finishing in Montreal starting on September 10th. We will do this by biking and running an average of 85km per day. Every day will end in a community party and will feature great food and local entertainment. I encourage anyone who is interested in participating in any way to support this important cause to contact me and I will be more than happy to provide additional details.
