A message from Russ Lee – “For those that don’t know me, here is a little background. I had the honour to be able to Serve this great Country in the Canadian Army. In 2002 I was deployed to Kandahar and spent 6 months there from February to August. When I came home, I quickly began to slide down that hill of Depression, later to be told that I was suffering with an OSI (Operational Stress Injury) and was diagnosed with PTSD. I fought the battle and won!
In 2008 I joined the Alberta Sheriff’s and in 2009 moved into the Sheriff Highway Patrol. In the 15 years in uniform I have had the honour of meeting and serving with some of this countries best. From Military to Police, Fire Fighters and and EMT’s and EMP’s.
Everyday, our Military, First Responders and their Families deal with horrific situations and moments that wound and can leave scars that last a lifetime. Legacy Place Society is an organization that helps those members and their families in those times of need”.
Russ will be camping out from noon on February 22nd until noon on March 1st at the Leduc # 1 Fire hall. Your support for Legacy Place Society is all he is looking for, and as he says “if you can donate a few bucks too, that would be awesome”!
Comments from Russ – “As I said earlier, the main reason I have chosen to do this is to raise awareness for both Legacy Place Society and for those that are suffering. I am also trying to raise funds for this amazing organization.
If you can make a donation to this worthy cause, it may be done directly via e-transfer using the following email address; firstname.lastname@example.org and include your full name and mailing address in your donation memo to receive a charitable tax receipt.
If there is a banking security question asked, please use this, “What is the name of Russ’s Operation?” The answer is “operationlegacy” (one word all lower case).
Thank you all for all of your support. God Bless, Russ Lee
