Runners with Wounded Warrior Run BC left Nanaimo Thursday morning on day 5 of their 6-day journey from the top of Vancouver Island to the bottom.
Along they way they’ve been raising awareness about PTSD, and the resources available to help Canadian veterans struggling with mental health issues.
Run Director Ron Mireau says they’ve met people who are still reluctant to admit their inner battles.
Mireau says they’ve so far raised more than 16-thousand dollars for Wounded Warriors Canada.
