Help Michael raise money

For participating in Canada Army Run:Virtual 2021/Course de l’Armée du Canada : Virtuelle 2021

My Story…

As many of you know this will be my FIRST half marathon! I have lightly joked about doing one for years now and have finally mustered up the grit to follow through. Instead of simply talking about it, I will be officially taking on my largest challenge to date. With support from friends and family, a little ambition, and the last 6 months of training, I am confident I will be able to crush this 21Km!

I realize there are 100 other fundraising events I could have chosen, but this is the one that stuck out most as it is a cause I support wholeheartedly. The Army Run is in support of the foundations' Soldier On, and Support Our Troops. This fundraiser allows the opportunity for advocates in surrounding communities to give back to the Canadian Armed Forces, their families, the ill, and the injured. Including, but not limited to, providing financial assistance to promote family resiliency, supporting any and all recovery, rehabilitation, and reintegration of members with a physical and/or mental illness or injury. 

Having both a grandfather and great grandfather serve in the military, (as I'm sure many of your parents and grandparents have), I am sure you can understand the importance of helping out wherever and whenever we can. Please do not feel obligated to donate, but please consider that every dollar donated counts towards bettering the circumstances for those who may need it more than we know. I appreciate your support in advance and thank you for donating to this important cause.




While we are unable to be physically together this year, we are thrilled that the Army Run family will be able to join hands virtually, and run, walk, or roll in support of the Canadian Armed Forces community. 

The aviators, sailors, and soldiers of our Canadian Armed Forces wear the maple leaf as a symbol of pride and patriotism on their uniforms as they represent and protect our nation at home and abroad. Their families are the strength behind the uniform as they experience frequent moves, lengthy absences, and the risks of family members serving in physically and mentally demanding and dangerous situations.

Support Our Troops, the official charitable cause of the Canadian Armed Forces, is the beneficiary of the funds raised by Canada Army Run. It was established to meet the unique needs and challenges faced by members of the Canadian Armed Forces community as a result of their military service.

Support Our Troops champions two main objectives, to care of members with physical and/or mental health illness or injury and promoting resiliency in families. 

 Your efforts will:

  • support ill and/or injured members in their rehabilitation and recovery through the transformative power of sport, recreation, and creative pursuits with the Soldier On program 
  • empower youth to pursue their academic dreams
  • maintain the dignity, independence, and well-being of families during financial hardship
  • send children of military families to camp bringing them a renewed energy and a support network

The funds you raise will ensure that the women and men of the Canadian Armed Forces have access to the financial resources they need when they need them the most. Thank you for being there for our brave and dedicated Canadian Armed Forces women and men who will always be there for us. 

Last year, the fundraising efforts of Canada Army Run participants contributed to the positive impact made in the lives of Canadian Armed Forces members and their families.



Même s’il n’est pas possible de nous rassembler en personne cette année, nous sommes ravis que les membres de la grande famille de la Course de l’Armée du Canada se donneront la main virtuellement pour courir, marcher ou rouler afin d’appuyer la communauté des Forces armées canadiennes (FAC).   

Les aviateurs, les matelots et les soldats des FAC portent sur leur uniforme la feuille d’érable, symbole de fierté et de patriotisme, alors qu’ils représentent et protègent notre pays, ici et à l’étranger. Leurs familles constituent la force derrière l’uniforme; elles vivent des déménagements fréquents, des absences prolongées et des risques associés au service lors de situations dangereuses et exigeantes physiquement et mentalement.

Appuyons nos troupes, l’œuvre de bienfaisance officielle des Forces armées canadiennes, est le bénéficiaire des fonds recueillis dans le cadre de la Course de l’Armée du Canada. Elle a été établie pour répondre aux besoins et aux défis uniques auxquels font face les membres de la communauté des Forces armées canadiennes en raison du service militaire.

Appuyons nos troupes vise deux objectifs principaux : prendre soin des militaires qui ont une maladie et/ou une blessure physique ou mentale et promouvoir la résilience des familles.

Vos efforts contribueront à :

  • soutenir la réadaptation et le rétablissement des membres des FAC ayant une maladie et/ou une blessure physique ou mentale grâce au pouvoir transformateur du sport, des loisirs et des activités créatives offertes par Sans limites; 
  • habiliter les jeunes à concrétiser leur rêve de poursuivre des études;
  • maintenir la dignité, l’autonomie et le bien-être des familles lors de difficultés financières;
  • envoyer des enfants de familles de militaires à des camps, leur donnant un regain d’énergie et un réseau de soutien.

Les fonds que vous amassez permettront aux femmes et aux hommes des Forces armées canadiennes d’accéder à des ressources financières lorsqu’ils en ont le plus besoin. Merci d’être là pour ces braves femmes et hommes des Forces armées canadiennes des plus dévoués qui seront toujours là pour nous. 

L’an dernier, les efforts en matière de collecte de fonds déployés par les participants à la Course de l’Armée du Canada ont exercé un impact positif sur la vie des membres des Forces armées canadiennes et de leurs familles.
