Wounded Warriors is a non-profit organization to help soldiers who have fought in Afghanistan with reintegration back into Canada. Many problems have occurred with our soldiers involving battle wounds and missing ligaments from the war, but also non-visible issues with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and other Mental Health issues. Your donations will help raise money for the charity to support the rehabilitation of our soldiers with regards to proper mental health recovery and The Segway Project which helps with mobility issues in our soldiers with visible wounds. Any help you can offer will go a long way for this charity organization and it is a great way for our communities to help a good cause and uncover the amazing talent of country music we have in central Ontario. Country music is known for showing a great amount of support for our troops, so this Remembrance Day weekend lets continue the tradition and help give back to those who serve for our freedom.
Graham Trude is an ex-soldier posted out of Edmonton Alberta with the Lord Strathcona’s Horse (Royal Canadians) Tank Regiment. He served in Afghanistan in 2009 as an armoured crewman operating on the Leopard (2A6M) main battle tank gun systems and driving compartment. Currently he has relocated back to Collingwood, Ontario where he is originally from, and established an annual event for a charity called “Wounded Warriors”. The event takes place in Collingwood, Ontario as a Country Music Acoustic Concert involving a great amount of support from the local and surrounding communities. Last year “Jamie Warren” headlined this event and we were successful in raising more then $6000.00 for the Wounded Warriors. This year there is expected to be a much larger crowd because of the great amount of success from last years concert. Graham would love to have you onboard to help promote this great cause for our soldiers who now need our service for their recovery.
