The Legion Foundation BC/Yukon Command, is hosting our "Enduring Tulip" Gala at the Sheraton Guildford Hotel & Convention Centre. This year's theme celebrates the 75th Anniversary of the Liberation of Holland by our Canadian Troops during WW II.

About the Liberation of Holland

liberation_holland_celebration

 

In celebration of the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Holland and in support of our Veterans in BC and Yukon we are hosting a Gala to be held April 24, 2020.

The Liberation of Holland was brought about primarily by the Canadians, a monumental struggle of service and sacrifice in the pursuit of democracy and freedom. Canadians signed up from across our country, joining forces to sail across the Atlantic Ocean to liberate a people they did not know. 

The Dutch people have never forgotten. Each spring the Dutch government sends 100,000 tulips to Ottawa, a heartfelt gesture signaling an unbroken friendship. 

Now, 75 years later, you are invited to become part of this enduring connection between our two nations. It will be an experience of admiration and respect like no other - it will be a truly emotional journey.

Help us Raise Funds for the Legion Veterans Village

lokomatpro

 

  • 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.

Lokomat Medical Device - Fundraising

The Legion Foundation BC/Yukon Command is seeking sponsors to help raise $500.000.00 for a “LOKOMAT” machine that provides necessary assistance to help our Troops and First Responders who have been injured train their mind and brain to reactivate the muscles and bodies to walk again. This machine is a wonderful tool that is badly needed at our Legion Village. Donation towards this project would be greatly appreciated by everyone and especially the families who need this equipment to live a full and productive life once again.
