Help Barb raise money

For participating in The Annual Brampton Run for Veterans

My Story…

Please help us make this year's 3rd Inaugural Brampton Run for Veterans in support of Royal Canadian Legion (Ont. Br.15) one of the best ever.

Please support the Royal Canadian Legion (Ont. Br.15)!  As the world around us changes and the repercussions of COVID-19 are affecting us all, we need your help more than ever!  This year the event will once again be virtual, but that will not deter us.   

As Canadians, we owe a great debt to the men and women of the Canadian Armed Forces, past and present, for affording us the life we are so fortunate to have in Canada, by selflessly sacrificing of themselves up to and including their lives!  This is a cause that is very close to my heart, so raising funds by participating in a Run/Walk for veterans seems the least I can do.  My father, Flight Sgt. William Sproule was in the RCAF in WW2, a rear gunner in a Whitley bomber and was shot down, captured and spent 4 years in various POW camps.  My son, Sgt. Christopher Brown is currently serving and is a veteran of the war in Afghanistan.  The picture I chose to display shows the last glimpse of my son that I got as he went through security at Trenton Air Force base to board the plane to take him to Afghanistan.  I cannot tell you the range of emotions that were going through me.  He was just 20 years old, turned 21 while in Afghanistan.   I thank God every day for his safe return to us and can only imagine the pain of those who were not so blessed.  Please help me in honouring the sacrifices made by our Canadian Armed Forces by donating what you can.  Thanks in advance!

Supporting our veterans is a cause very near and dear to my heart and if my participation in the event can help, I am more than happy to do it! If you are able to help with a donation, please click the link to my donation page. Thanks!
