2nd Annual Vancouver Island Run for Homeless Vets

What is the Vancouver Island Run for Homeless Vets?

It’s a motorcycle ride that raises money for organizations that help homeless military veterans.

It’s a personal cause for organizer Thea Squire who says she has a lot of friends who are ex-military and suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Squire has been talking to lots of veterans organizations, spreading the word, and has heard a lot of stories about homeless veterans and the issues they face. She says veterans affairs organizations aren’t even able to put an exact figure on how many veterans are experiencing homelessness.

Funds from the ride will be mostly going to COCKRELL HOUSE in Colwood.
COCKRELL HOUSE provides a home for veterans in transition.
