Who we are: 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”.
What we do:
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.
Goal of Boomer’s Legacy:
The goal of Boomer’s Legacy is to empower all deployed Canadian Forces soldiers, sailors, airmen and airwomen by the raising and provision of charitable funds, thus helping them to help others. In this way, they are able to carry on Andrew’s strongly felt desire to provide much needed humanitarian assistance to people where ever and whenever Canadian Forces members are.
