SOLDIER ON

Featured Charity - 7th Annual Vancouver Military Dinner (2022)

Soldier On is an official Canadian Armed Forces program which seeks to help veterans and serving military personnel overcome illness and injury through sport and physical activity. Through their various programs, they provide Canada's finest with a safe environment in which to challenge themselves, get inspired, form relationships, and re-introduce physicality into their lives. Many credit Soldier On with empowering them to adapt and re-integrate with local, community-based activities, and remain active for life.

Soldier On leads and manages the team of dedicated athletes that will represent Canada at the 2020 Invictus Games.  Funds raised at the 7th Annual Vancouver Military Dinner will go to support these athletes, and some of Soldier On's other valuable programs.

HONOUR HOUSE

Featured Charity - 6th Annual Vancouver Military Dinner (2019)

Honour House provides a “home away from home” for ill and inured heroes and their families, where they can stay completely free of charge while receiving medical care and treatment in the Metro Vancouver area. Located on a quiet, tree-lined street in New Westminster, the facility is a fully renovated heritage home with modern facilities, and lovingly-maintained grounds. Almost all of the work needed to keep Honour House running is carried out by a dedicated board of directors and a hard working team of volunteers, many of whom have served their country themselves.

2019 proceeds also supported Honour Ranch, a new facility near Ashcroft, BC dedicated to supporting treatment of operational stress injuries
