Today the Lheidli T’enneh memorial park held the annual Red Shirt Walk of Honour to support Afghanistan War veterans.
All proceeds made through this event go to the Winch House in Vancouver, where they provide care and aid for those suffering from post war trauma, whether physical or mental.
There was quite the gathering at the park today for this commemorative event. There were plenty of vendors accepting offers via silent auction on their products. There was also a lovely group of ladies running a BBQ for everyone in attendance. Once the walk was finished a live band was on stage to provide further entertainment.
The walking route was lined with 159 Canadian flags, and the posts were engraved with names of those who lost their lives in the battlefield.
There were plenty of speakers on stage for the opening ceremony, and it was great to see a tonne of smiling faces in the crowd, including a 94 year old WWII veteran, excited to help the cause.
