When a member of Canada’s Armed Forces falls in combat, his or her final journey is along the Highway of Heroes from CFB Trenton to the Coroner’s Office in Toronto.
We are planting 2 million trees along the 401 Highway of Heroes, a tribute to the men and women who fought for Canada in our wars, and a living memorial to the 117,000 who sacrificed their lives for freedom.
Every Canadian can be a part of this historic tribute. Look at the names on the cenotaph in YOUR community. Help us to honour those from YOUR community and ensure their spirit lives on in a living tribute!
Recently, we sat down with Don Cherry, Legendary Canadian Media personality and a Champion of the Highway of Heroes Tree Campaign.
With the cooler temperatures comes the opportunity to plant more trees in honour of our brave servicemen and servicewomen. This fall we are going to be planting nearly 10,000 at various sites along the Highway of Heroes and nearby communities.
EXCITING NEWS FOR THE HIGHWAY OF HEROES TREE CAMPAIGN
Friday was a transformational day in our Highway of Heroes Living Tribute Campaign. Premier Kathleen Wynne announced a $1 million donation on behalf of the government of Ontario. This gives us a huge push towards our goal of raising $10 million by 2020.
This, in addition to more than $1.7 million raised from private Canadian sources to date draws us close to 30% of our goal.
The Highway of Heroes Living Tribute team, Cabinet and our honorary patrons, Sharon and David Johnston are delighted and excited by the lift that this announcement gives us.”
