Interested in investing in the lives of veteran mobility?
Help us Raise Funds for the Legion Veterans Village
Raise $500,000 to purchase a Lokomat device for the Legion Veterans Village, a new Centre of Excellence in PTSD and Mental Health and Innovating Centre for Rehabilitation that is currently under construction in Surrey, BC.
Bring awareness to Veteran's heath needs and the BC/Yukon Legion Foundation.
The Lokomat® is a driven gait orthosis that automates or assists walking movements on a treadmill, allowing greater efficiency of treadmill training and reducing physical demand on therapists. Locomotion therapy on the treadmill has been shown to improve over-ground walking function caused by neurological diseases and injuries in many cases.
This year marks the Legion Foundations 23th anniversary!
The Foundation was formed in 1997 to be charitable arm of the Legion. As a registered charitable organization the Legion Foundation continues to support Veterans and strengthen communities. We will be giving more than $500,000 in support this year due to the generosity all those who donate.
Some of the ways Legion Foundations helps:
- Funds key initiatives in research and treatment of trauma and PTSD;
- Contributes to the acquisition of medical and other necessary equipment for senior’s care;
- Supports a diverse range of youth, academic, athletic and social programs;
- Distributes funds for Veterans’ programs like Service Dogs and initiatives to stop homelessness
- Provides housing support for Veterans and seniors
- And much more
Looking back at the last 23 years, we are proud of the good we have been able to do. Our hope is to continue this work and to create an even greater positive impact on communities across British Columbia and the Yukon. This would not be possible without the kindness of those who donate. Our ability to support our Veterans and communities depends on you.
