Robin & Stewart’s Marathon

Robin and Stewart are Legion members running the Victoria Marathon in October 2013 to raise PTSD awareness and funds for Veteran Transition Programs.

Stewart is a Veteran who served on NATO operations to Bosnia and Kosovo, and both Robin and Stewart were raised in military families. They understand what a military life is, that it’s far from an ordinary life, and even further from an ordinary job.

They have friends battling PTSD and they see firsthand the struggle that newly returning Veterans, and service men and women face.
