Boomer’s Legacy is named after Corporal Andrew “Boomer” Eykelenboom, a dedicated soldier, and a Canadian Forces medic, killed by a suicide bomber, August 11, 2006. Andrew was committed to saving lives and helping the Afghan people realize freedom. His death was the catalyst to creating this Foundation to help men and women in uniform make a positive difference in the lives of others. Andrew’s humanitarian spirit lives on through Boomer’s Legacy, committed to “Helping our Soldiers Help Others”.
We raise awareness for our military’s efforts on deployed operations around the globe and raise funds for Boomer’s Legacy – money our soldiers can access to further help the people in communities where they serve. We do this by holding fundraising events and by giving presentations to schools and interested groups. Funds raised have been used for basic humanitarian needs, medical care and education.
Helping Our Soldiers Help Others at Home & Abroad
Through the generous donations from caring individuals across Canada and abroad we have raised over $800,000 and are able to continue what Andrew valued most, making a difference in the lives of others. Be a part!
