We are so pleased to announce that we will be planning and coordinating fundraising events for such an important organization such as Badge of Life Canada.
Badge of Life Canada began in 2010 and is a peer-led, charitable volunteer organization solely self-funded on a “pay it forward” approach. They are committed to supporting police and corrections personnel who are dealing with psychological injuries diagnosed from service.
Their mission is to;
- Promote health by providing active and retired personnel in policing and correctional services who have been diagnosed with operational stress injuries, including post-traumatic stress, with access to counseling, information and group support programs;
- Advance education by undertaking funding research into the causes and effects of, and treatments for, operational stress injuries, and making the results of that research available to the public;
- Advance education by holding conferences and workshops, and providing educational resources, on topics related to operational stress injuries, including post-traumatic stress and suicide prevention; and
- Undertake activities ancillary and incidental to the attainment of the above charitable purposes.
