The 2019 Boomer’s Legacy Ride is on its way to Nanaimo this morning. Approximately three dozen cyclists, along with their support crew, left the Courtenay Civic Cemetery at 8:45 for their journey down-Island.

The riders will arrive in Nanaimo this afternoon, and head back to Comox Sunday morning, along with another group of cyclists, coming from Port Alberni.

See the attached schedule for times. Come on out and show your support.

Boomer’s Legacy is named after Corporal Andrew “Boomer” Eykelenboom, a dedicated soldier and a Canadian Armed Forces medic killed by a suicide bomber on August 11, 2006.

Andrew was committed to saving lives and helping the Afghan people realize freedom. His death was the catalyst to creating Boomer’s Legacy to help men and women in uniform make a positive difference in the lives of others. Andrew’s humanitarian spirit lives on through Boomer’s Legacy, committed to “Helping our Troops Help Others.”
