Visit the Legion Booth at the 2016 Canada Army Run in Ottawa

Dec 12, 2016

The Royal Canadian Legion is a proud sponsor and supporter of the Canada Army Run!

The Canada Army Run is a special event that shares the military esprit de corps, and provides Canadians with the opportunity to say thank you to the men and women who serve. In addition to raising much needed funds for ill and injured soldiers and military families in need, the Army Run promotes the spirit of camaraderie, community and support – a spirit and mandate equally shared by The Royal Canadian Legion.

If you are running the race or are in Ottawa the weekend of the race, stop by the Legion booth in the Army Run Sports Expo and learn about what we do, how we help serving and retired military and RCMP and their families in need, and how YOU can support Canada’s Veterans every day by becoming a member of the Legion.

While at the Legion booth, pick up a "Lest We Forget" wristband, Remembrance Poppy seeds for your garden, and a Poppy sticker to wear proudly on Race Day in support of Fallen Veterans! (Available while supplies last)


Show your support and help Veterans in need by joining the Legion. Through your membership, the Legion provides assistance to Veterans and their families, remembers the Fallen, and supports our communities. You don’t have to be a Veteran to join and make a difference!


If you or a Veteran you know needs assistance, the Legion is here to help. Our Service Officer Network can direct you to programs, services and financial assistance for Veterans and their families to get the help they need. Learn more about our services for Veterans.

Honouring Veterans is Our Duty
