The Canadian Corps of Commissionaires and the New Brunswick business community are teaming up for ill and injured veterans at the Soldier On Atlantic Golf Invitational

Rothesay, NB – The Soldier On Atlantic Golf Invitational is happening on June 12, 2024, sponsored by the Canadian Corps of Commissionaires at Riverside Country Club in Rothesay, NB. Proceeds from the third annual charity golf event will benefit Soldier On, a Canadian Armed Forces program that helps serving members and veterans overcome their physical and mental health injuries through sport, recreational and creative activities.

Eighteen teams, consisting of leaders from Atlantic Canada’s business community and the public sector, will participate in the tournament. Each team will include one injured veteran from the Soldier On program.

“Any opportunity to demonstrate our appreciation for those who risked their well-being to serve our country is worth our time and resources,” said Jake Bell, Past Chair of the Board of Governors for New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island Division of the Corps of Commissionaires, the event sponsor. “Our division is hosting the Annual Meeting of Divisions (AMOD) for the Corps in Saint John this week and many of the delegates will be playing alongside our injured soldiers and veterans.”

Media and the community are invited to attend the event for an up-close look at Canadian Armed Forces equipment on display and to watch the flyover of a Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) CH-146 Griffon Helicopter. There will be opportunities for media to speak with event organizers, sponsors, business leaders and Armed Forces officials.

Michael Feyko is no stranger to challenge, having survived a parachute accident while serving in the Canadian Armed Forces. After years of struggle with his catastrophic physical and mental injuries, he has become a PGA golf professional and the driving force behind Soldier On’s golf program. Michael shares, “We couldn’t be as effective of a program and deliver as much direct support to Canada’s ill and injured without assistance from sponsors like the Canadian Corps of Commissionaires.”
