This is a story about much more than a $10,000 cheque that the Burlington Legion (Branch 60) presented to Road to Recovery -they cal it Ruck.

It is the story about a group of people who are walking a trail from Tobermory to Queenston Heights supporting a GoFundMe Drive to support Homeless Canadian Veterans.

For the moment a photo of the group as they set out on day xx after spending the night at the Legion sleeping on foam mattresses on the floor, having a hearty breakfast and loading up the next 20 to 25 km march.

Along with the Ruck crew are Branch 60 President Murray Sutherland (far right) and Vice Presidents Dan Lauzon (bottom left) and (John Mattocks far left).

The $10,000 donation came from the Legion’s Poppy Fund.

  • Always found it very sad that there is such a thing as homeless Canadian Veterans. Shame on those who could have ended this before it began. Kudos to those bringing attention to the need and those who raised the $10,000 by selling poppies. We just love what the Legion does in this community very quietly most of the time..
