Second Annual “Canadian Walk for Veterans”- October 19th in ten major cities coast to coast
Courtenay, Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Barrie, Ottawa, Kingston, Phillipsburg, Moncton and Charlottetown
The Second Annual Canadian Walk for Veterans will be held in ten cities across Canada on Saturday, October 19th 2019. Created in 2018 and held in seven cities across the country it is an initiative created by Canada’s veterans for Canada’s veterans. This year the walk is being expanded to recognize the contributions, challenges and sacrifices made by all veterans/first responders and their families: military, police, fire fighters, emergency health service providers etc.
The theme of this year’s walk is suicide prevention recognizing that many of our veterans and first responders who are always there to help us sometimes need help themselves. Their time in service protecting our freedom and way of life exposes them to traumatic events and many suffer from debilitating PTSD that can lead to thoughts of suicide. The Canadian Walk for Veterans is an opportunity for Canadians to walk shoulder to shoulder, hear their stories and show them that we care. Every person who attends the CWFV in all 10 cities will receive a challenge coin that lets them, their families and friends know that help is available and where to find it. The coin includes an 1-800 suicide prevention hotline number and the following message of hope: “One day your story of perseverance will be someone else’s survival guide”.
Eighty percent of this year’s CWFV net proceeds will be donated to 4 organizations who are working hard to provide veterans and first responders with support, rehabilitation services and the tools they need to cope. Most importantly they provide hope and bring a sense of purpose back into their lives.

A retirement celebration made into a fund raising to help
About this Event
Let me introduce myself. My name is Marie-Claude St-Jules, I recently retired from the RCMP after 26 years of service. Towards the end of my career I had an explosion of cumulative traumas acquired that I had suppressed throughout my career. This brutal awakening has taught me many lessons and most importantly I have become aware that too many oﬃcers suﬀer alone throughout their journey and too many end up taking their own lives.
I decided to turn my retirement celebration into a fund raising event to give an opportunity for first responders , military and other personel wearing the uniform to have access to a safe place to heal from their suffering. The funds will go to registered non-for profit organizations such as Camp My Way, Project Trauma Support , LaVigile and its Ontario Chapters soon coming to Ontario.
For the Event we will have Guest Speakers , Terrance Kosikar, Jason Burd and Annabelle Dionne. We will have musique, food and beverages and other surprises!
You can still participate in this event if you cant make it to Ottawa, you can chose to donate by getting the ticket with a donation.
