Juno Beach Centre Association
Virtual Remembrance Day / Juno Beach event - StrongPoint 1500m
jeudi Décembre 31, 2020

S'il vous plaît, veuillez nous aider à faire de la campagne annuelle de Virtual Remembrance Day / Juno Beach event, en appui à Juno Beach Centre Association, une des meilleures jamais réalisées.

[Le texte français suit ci-dessous]

My name is Jim Parks and I am a Second World War veteran who just turned 96 in September. On June 6th 1944, as a 19-year-old, I landed on Juno Beach with the Royal Winnipeg Rifles to begin the liberation of France from Nazi Germany. I came ashore very close to where the Juno Beach Centre, Canada's Second World War museum and cultural centre in Normandy, France, stands today.

The Centre is near and dear to me. It honours the over 45,000 Canadians who died fighting the Second World War. I have been an active runner my whole life and am pleased to be walking the Strongpoint 1500m in support of the Juno Beach Centre. 

I am walking in memory of the over 5,000 Canadians who laid down their lives in Normandy. Today they rest in cemeteries like Bény-sur-Mer and Bretteville-sur-Laize. 

My initial goal is to raise one dollar for each of them. The funds raised will help the JBC overcome the losses associated with the prolonged closure of the museum in order to fight COVID-19. Join me to ensure that my comrades are always remembered at Juno Beach!

Update: it has been less than a week and dozens of generous supporters have helped me reach my initial goal of one dollar raised for every Canadian killed in Normandy. I have updated my goal to $18,700. This is the number of Canadian soldiers killed, wounded, or captured in Normandy. 

THANK YOU AND LEST WE FORGET!

Je suis Jim Parks et je suis un vétéran de la Seconde Guerre mondiale et j’ai célébrer mes 96 ans en septembre dernier. Le 6 juin 1944, à l'âge de 19 ans, j'ai pris part au Débarquement à Juno Beach au sein de mon régiment, les Royal Winnipeg Rifles afin de commencer la libération de la France de l'Allemagne nazie. J’ai foulé la terre de Normandie tout près de l'endroit où se trouve aujourd'hui le Centre Juno Beach, le musée canadien de la Seconde Guerre mondiale et centre culturel canadien en Normandie.

Le Centre me tient beaucoup à cœur. Il rend hommage aux plus de 45 000 Canadiens qui sont morts au cours de la Seconde Guerre mondiale. J'ai été un coureur actif toute ma vie et je suis heureux de marcher sur les 1500 mètres « Strongpoint » en soutien au Centre Juno Beach.

Je marche à la mémoire des plus de 5 000 Canadiens qui ont sacrifié leur vie en Normandie. Aujourd'hui, ils reposent dans des cimetières comme Bény-sur-Mer et Bretteville-sur-Laize.

Mon objectif initial est d'amasser un dollar pour chacun d'eux. Les fonds collectés aideront le JBC à surmonter les pertes liées à la fermeture prolongée du musée afin de lutter contre le COVID-19. Rejoignez-moi pour vous assurer que mes camarades ne seront jamais oubliés à Juno Beach!

Mise à jour: cela fait moins d'une semaine et des dizaines de généreux supporteurs m'ont aidé à atteindre mon objectif initial d'un dollar amassé pour chaque Canadien tué en Normandie. J'ai mis à jour mon objectif à 18 700 $. Il s'agit du nombre de soldats canadiens tués, blessés ou capturés en Normandie.

MERCI ET N'OUBLIONS PAS!
