My name is Mark Staveley and I’m a former member of the Canadian Forces (Princess of Wales Own Regiment and then later the Fort Henry Guard).
I’ve always been appreciative of the sacrifices that have been made by members of both the Canadian and US Armed Forces. From a young age I was taught about the good military collaboration and friendship of these two wonderful countries as my late-Grandfather was part of the 1st Joint Canadian / American Special Service Force operation in the Aleutian Islands during WWII.
This month I turn 40 and I wanted to celebrate this occasion by doing something to honour soldiers.
So….on the 28th of September I will be running the “Race for a Soldier” and I hope you will support me.
