Tomorrow, retired Vancouver Firefighter, Colin Thompson, is starting a 3000 km ride to the Fallen Fire Fighters Memorial in Colorado Springs. He aims to raise the $70,000 required to start a brand new initiative at Vancouver General Hospital. This program is the first of its kind in British Columbia and will provide first responders with a dedicated PTSD support program.
Off duty firefighters will be escorting him through Maple Ridge late tomorrow morning along Lougheed to Mission.

Good luck Colin!
