Boomer’s Legacy to become part of Support Our Troops

Hello Everyone,

Greetings to all of you. Please read the following announcement in regard to Boomer’s Legacy and the exciting future that is in store.

At some point you have been a supporter, an encourager and/or a hard worker for the cause of Helping Our Soldiers Help Others at Home & Abroad.  Please know that I am forever grateful for that support. Thank you.

There will be a BC Bike Ride on the weekend of June 12th, 2015 – we will be a third party fundraiser raising funds for Boomer’s Legacy as held by Support Our Troops. Yahoo!

A successful Bike Ride just happen in Nova Scotia – no injuries and 45 cyclists rode the 180 kms from Greenwood to Halifax.  They plan on having their Bike Ride in June next year.

Steve Owen and Lynn Purich from the Barrie area are working on a ride from Borden for 2015, also in that May – June timeframe.

Just working on all the details of the “hand over” which promises to be a good relationship.  Open up the attachment and have a quick read – with a grin!

On Saturday, 13 September a group of 45 Nova Scotia riders successfully cycled 180 km from 14 Wing Greenwood to Citadell Hill Halifax, in support of Boomer’s Legacy. The event was blessed with sunny skies and no incidents.

Boomer’s Legacy extends our deepest thanks to Lisa Klco and everyone else who made this ride the success it was. Looking forward to 2015 already.

Have a look at the slideshow below for some images from the event.

  • ATF Romania: ATF members completed the charity project and presented the key to the grandmother and her granddaughter on August 17, 2014.
  • Present during the key hand-over were representatives from Blythswood, the partner charity organization, and the mayor’s office.
  • The project was made possible by the personal motivation of ATF members, the generosity of the Boomer’s Legacy Foundation, the leadership of Blythswood Romania (charity), and the support of the Floresti Mayor’s Office and our hosts the Romanian Air Force.
  • The project made a big difference in the life of the beneficiary and has helped bring the ATF closer to the local community.

Maureen Eykelenboom

Without the ongoing annual support of people like Al from Thrifty’s in Duncan we  would not be able to offer our riders half the luxuries that have become synonymous with our BC Ride. To Al and his team, and everyone else who puts in time and effort and other resources, our deepest thanks for helping us help our soldiers help others.

A Big Boomer’s Legacy Thank You to Karl Ulrich of Oak Bay Bicycles

Maureen Eykelenboom

Karl and his team keep our riders on the road, year after year. It is hard to imagine a Boomer’s Legacy British Columbia bicycle ride without having Oak Bay Bicycles ready to take care of all the mechanical details, from replacing shoe clip screws to on-the-spot tire repairs. The ongoing annual support of people like Karl from Oak Bay Bicycles allows us to offer our riders the luxuries that have become synonymous with our Boomer’s Legacy British Columbia Ride.

To Karl and his team, and everyone else who puts in time and effort and other resources, our deepest thanks for helping us help our soldiers help others.
