Trail Legion rides for PTSD

The Royal Canadian Legion Branch #11 held its third annual ride for the BCIT Military Skills Conversion Program Sunday. At 10 a.m. sharp, 58 bikes revved up for a ride around the Kootenay area and raised $2100 for the cause, which adds to $2000 a raffle brought in over the last six weeks. Harvey Truax (front), from Branch 20 Nakusp, led the procession to bring awareness and raise money for the treatment of veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.  - Sheri Regnier
