ADAPT, OVERCOME, and SOLDIER ON!
Sergeant (ret'd) Vaughan Lightowler
"There is no higher calling than that of
service. There is no greater achievement
than that of doing that service well."
April 5th, 6th and 7th 2019, The THIRD
ANNUAL SOLDIER ON BENEFIT DART TOURNAMENT
was held at the Royal Canadian Legion,
Branch #244 Perth-On-Tay. As a result, on
Wednesday May 8th the tournament founder and
director, Sergeant (ret'd) Vaughan
Lightowler, had the privilege and honour of
presenting a cheque to the SOLDIER ON
Organization in the amount of $8,500.00!
Through the generous support of local
corporate entities, private businesses and
of course over 200 dart players, the
SOLDIER ON BENEFIT DART TOURNAMENT and
the small army of Perth Legion and local
volunteers have never looked back from its
start in April 2017. To date the three
tournaments have contributed over $18,000.00
directly to SOLDIER ON!
give those numbers some perspective, the
SOLDIER ON organization requires
approximately one thousand dollars to send
one ill-or-injured soldier to a Provincial
Sporting Camp where that serving or retired
member is assisted to reintegrate into an
active lifestyle through the medium of
sport. Since 2007 over six million dollars
disbursed through SOLDIER ON to
support over 5000 members.
