The Boomer’s ride honours all 158 Canadian soldiers who have given their lives in the line of duty while serving in Afghanistan. The ride began on Vancouver Island through the collective efforts of chief warrant officer Todd Mcgowan and triathlete Deb Koster. Many of the participating cyclists have served in Afghanistan, and some of the civilian cyclists are family members of fallen soldiers.
The main fundraising event for Boomer’s Legacy is the Annual Boomer’s Ride. Each of the cyclists will carry, on their bikes, the biography of one or two of our fallen soldiers (all fallen soldiers will be represented throughout each ride).
For each ride, it is our hope that the residents of the towns and cities that we ride through will support this unique event by wearing red, standing along the roadside waving Canadian flags and calling out their encouraging comments to the cyclists. You can also sponsor a cyclist or donate online.
