Policing is an extremely rewarding career; however, the reality that cannot be ignored is that it comes with regular exposure to trauma, horrific scenes, and dangerous situations. Said Sgt. Rob Brennan, Wounded Warriors Runner and member of the Comox Valley RCMP. Over the course of my career, I have observed many members who have suffered immensely as a result of the mental toll this takes on ones mind. I have a passion and I am driven to empower others to open up about their struggles, seek assistance, and overcome challenges.

As part of the collective effort to support Canada's veterans, first responders, and their families, the Wounded Warrior Run embodies the mission of helping them feel safe, supported, and understood.
