Wounded Warrior Island-wide run starts in Port Hardy Sunday morning

Starting Sunday, eight ‘wounded warriors’ will run from Port Hardy to Victoria, to help their struggling peers.

The Wounded Warrior Run starts Sunday morning in Port Hardy’s Carrot Park. Over eight days, eight runners will travel 800 kilometres, finishing on March 3 in Mill Bay, Victoria.

This year’s runners include police from Victoria, armed forces personnel, and a volunteer fire fighter. The goal of the run is to raise funds and awareness for Wounded Warriors Canada, which helps veterans, first responders and their families cope with trauma. The charity’s long-term goal is to help them feel safe, supported, and understood.

The run will feature stops in Campbell River, Comox, and Nanaimo during their trek south.
