To All

I have been an active supporter of Valour Place since it's inception in 2010, and I have seen this facility built brick by brick. I have also seen the families that have used this facility and been given the foundation that they needed while a loved one underwent medical treatment in Edmonton.

It is my hope that you will pause for minute and give support to this great organisation, and here is why: Many of our brothers and sisters who work in rural and regional Alberta will, at some time, have to come to Edmonton to undertake medical treatment. Whether that treatment is work related or not, Valour Place will support you with accommodation and services FOR FREE. They will provide you with a place that you and your family can stay together and heal together.

If you and your loved ones can help support Valour Place, so that Valour Place can help support our blue families, then please participate in this great event on Sept 11. There will be food, family activities and a strong showing from local RCMP and Enforcement Agencies. I do sincerely hope to see you there.

best regards,

Jason Pascoe

Valour Place opened in 2012 to give military members, veterans, RCMP and Peace Officers a place to stay while undergoing medical treatment. As the first of its kind in Canada, Edmonton was the right fit not only because of the large population of military personnel but because of its world class health care in rehabilitation, brain injury, spinal cord injury, and amputations.

Since opening Valour Place has been at or near capacity. An endowment fund was established from the start to ensure that Valour Place will never be a burden on the community to continue operations. All money raised from the Walk for Valour will go towards making sure Valour Place can continue to operate for future guests.

“We call it hope away from home.” Says Dennis Erker, chairperson of Valour Place’s board of directors. “At Valour Place you have people with similar situations hurting too. So the home is designed to encourage interaction between our guests. Everyone has a reason for staying there.”
