KAMLOOPS — The Rolling Barrage, a motorcycle ride across the country to raise money and bring more awareness to those living with post-traumatic stress disorder, has turned the engines off on the third annual ride.
The ride started in Halifax on Aug. 5 and wrapped up in Burnaby Aug. 21. The founder of The Rolling Barrage, Scott Casey, a former UN peacekeeper, says the ride has brought in about $30,000 with more donations being processed.
The Chronicle Herald published an article on Rally Point Retreat.
Down a quiet road in Shelburne County, on a quiet 48 hectares, sits a rather unassuming ranch-style house.
This is Rally Point Retreat in Sable River, a place for first responders dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder to come to relax, escape, work with their hands, or just get away for quiet time with family — whatever they need to do to get through a rough patch.
Motorcyclists participating in the sixth annual memorial ride from the Wharf Rat Rally in Digby to the Afghanistan monument at Maple Grove Education Centre in Hebron received reassuring news during a ceremony honouring fallen veterans and their families.
