When Words Fail, Music Speaks
MUSICAL FUNDRAISING EVENT IN SUPPORT OF SOLDIER ON
Final amount raised: $4,000
Thank you to everyone who helped and supported us at the When Words Fail, Music Speaks fundraiser event for Soldier On Canada. This live musical marathon took place on Saturday, July 18, 2020. We did some amazing things together and it’s because of you and your generosity that this event was a huge success! Thank you as well to all the wonderful artists who came out and shared their amazing talent and gift with us. We had a goal of a $1,000, and not only did we reach it, we surpassed it by 4 times!
Soldier On Canada is a program that assists veterans and serving members by supporting them to overcome physical and mental health injuries through physical activity and sport.

JOIN THE LIVE VIRTUAL PARTY!
At the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, most people were isolated in their homes. In these uncertain times, DJ Ricky Recon wanted to do something to reach out and break up the monotony, and help anyone that may have felt like they were alone. The live DJ stream was then launched! This has developed into a musical entertainment show where everyone around the world can join for free, chat together and make requests, bringing the world a sense of togetherness without physically being together.
