OTTAWA, Sept. 22, 2013 /CNW/ - The Honourable Julian Fantino, Minister
of Veterans Affairs, joined his colleague, the Honourable Rob
Nicholson, Minister of National Defence, to greet men and women in
uniform, Veterans and their families at the start line of the 6th Canada Army Run.
"As Minister of Veterans Affairs, I am honoured to thank all
participants for supporting our nation's truest heroes in the 2013
Canada Army Run," said Minister Fantino.
The Canadian Army in Ottawa organizes the Canada Army Run every year to
raise awareness of the Army, to promote fitness, and to provide an
opportunity for Canadians to join together with the Canadian Armed
Forces in the spirit of camaraderie and mutual respect. More than
$150,000 was raised at last year's run for Soldier On and the Military
Families Fund. The run is now the fastest growing running event in
Canada with approximately 22,000 runners this year.
Veterans Affairs Canada has proudly served Veterans for more than half a
century. The Department provides quality service that is streamlined,
modern and responsive to the men and women who serve our country.
