A Big Boomer’s Legacy Thank You to Al Watson at Duncan Thrifty’s

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.

We just finished another amazing Boomer’s Legacy Bike Ride on Vancouver Island.

So many fantastic people make up “Boomer’s Team. The volunteers, the cyclists the RCMP, CAV members, the staff at the Thrifty Foods, the Legion members, the donors and many more. This year’s ride was even better than last year, the camaraderie, the emotional remembrance ceremony where all fallen soldiers are remembered was so heartfelt and meaningful.

So true, we don’t get over the loss of our loved one, but we do learn to live again. The people in my life now are the ones that lift me up, that help me to stand taller and that makes me smile.

I am grateful to you all.

Canadian Fallen Soldiers from Afghanistan 2014

The Ride for a Fallen Soldier

Boomer’s Legacy had decided that each of the cyclists participating in our events will carry, on their bikes, the biography of one or more of our fallen soldiers and that all fallen soldiers will be represented throughout each Ride.

Below you will find a list of all of the Canadian Fallen Soldiers from the war in Afghanistan, along with their photo.
