On July 28, 2020 the Gallant Knights Charity Sports Association presented two air rifles to deserving veterans:
- WO (Ret’d) Marcel Moreau CD2 – a Feinwerkbau Model 500, jacket, targets, pellets, glove and cases.
- Capt (Ret’d) Kristina Moreau CD2 – a Feinwerkbau Model 800, targets, jacket, pellets, glove and cases. Capt. Moreau won the gold medal in shooting at the Warrior Games in 2019. This in spite of having to use borrowed equipment for practice ahead of the games and for the competition. Capt Moreau plans to continue participating in competitive shooting in the future. She now has the equipment to continue practicing and competing.
The donation of the two air rifles is a family affair as Capt Moreau’s two children, who are also WO Moreau’s grandchildren, are also following in their footsteps. Also of note, Capt Moreau’s air rifle was donated in the memory of Maj (Ret’d) Wayne Boone CD, PhD who served as a Military Police officer and died on June 20, 2015. It made the donation all the more special when it was determined Maj Boone and Capt Moreau served together in Trenton.
GKCSA still has 2020 goals to fulfill with your help. We continue to raise additional funds for the purchase of a specialized, adaptive sports wheelchair for a veteran in British Columbia who wants to join a local wheelchair basketball league in Victoria; also for a handbike for a veteran in Pembroke so they may join the family on bike rides.
With your help, we will make a difference in these veterans’ lives!
