Wounded Warriors runners arrive in Port Alberni

Alberni Valley Times - 2/28/2020

The Wounded Warriors have arrived in Port Alberni.

Eight runners have been running across Vancouver Island, starting in Port Hardy on Feb. 23, to raise funds for Wounded Warriors Canada.

The group was led into Port Alberni on Thursday, Feb. 27 by local RCMP Cst. Maria Marciano. Her friends and colleagues cheered her on as she rounded Highway 4 into the Alberni Valley.

A fundraising dinner for Wounded Warriors will take place at the Royal Canadian Legion (Victoria Quay) tonight. The dinner starts at 5 p.m., with the runners joining the party at 5 p.m. A spaghetti dinner will be served for $10 per person and entertainment will be provided by the West Coast Highlanders Pipes and Drums.

100 percent of the funds raised from this Vancouver Island run will stay on Vancouver Island.
