$600,000 donated to Legion veterans’ project
LEGION VETERANS VILLAGE RESEARCH FOUNDATION — Representatives from the Maple Ridge Legion Branch 88 and the Earl Haig Society present $600,000 to the Legion Veterans Village Centre for Clinical Excellence, which is slated to be finished in late 2022.

SURREY, B.C. — Veterans and seniors advocates are gifting $600,000 to the Legion Veterans Village Research Foundation (LVVRF) to support mental health, PTSD, technologies and rehabilitation research within the Legion Veterans Village Centre for Clinical Excellence.

The LVVRF use the gift to create the LVV Centre of Clinical Excellence within national clinical research networks.

The group stated the project builds on key federal and provincial partnerships as the newly-formed non-profit charitable arm of Legion Veterans Village (LVV) launches a fundraising campaign for the LVVRF. In recognition of their contribution, the foundation plans to name the main boardroom at the Legion Veterans Village Centre of Clinical Excellence in honour of the Earl Haig Society.

“We are so grateful to the Legion Maple Ridge branch and the Earl Haig Society for their long-standing work to support veterans and for this generous contribution to the Legion Veterans Village,” said Rowena Rizzotti, project lead for LVV, in a press release. “It’s because of donations like these that enable us to invest in innovative technologies like the Lokomat, and to advance clinical research studies in the areas of rehabilitation and brain health including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), mental wellness and other neurological conditions that are significantly impacting veterans, first responders and their families.”

Legion Veterans Village is being built in downtown Surrey. It is scheduled for completion later this year.
