Fairways for Heroes is proud to contribute to Support Our Troops and Soldier On.
Support Our Troops
Established in 2007, Support Our Troops works to meet the unique needs and special challenges faced by members of the Canadian Armed Forces community as a result of their dedication to serving Canada and Canadians. It operates within Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services.
Some of the ways Support Our Troops supports the community includes providing financial assistance to promote family resiliency, to support the recovery, rehabilitation, and reintegration of members with a physical and/or mental illness or injury and various other elements that help the community cope with the rigor involved with military life.
Well recognized by its trademarked yellow ribbon, the organization encourages Canadians to show their appreciation and support to our women and men in uniform, veterans and their families through donations, attending community events and fundraising.

Soldier On is a program of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) which contributes to the recovery of ill and injured CAF members and veterans by providing opportunities and resources through sport, recreational, and creative activities. Soldier On is recognized for improving the quality of life of the ill and injured and is a highly visible and integral component of the Department of National Defence, and the CAF’s commitment to the care of ill and injured members. Generous Canadians support the program through donations and fundraising to the Soldier On Fund, which is managed by Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services.
Since 2007, Soldier On has supported over 10,000 ill and injured members using sport and physical recreational activities to enable social support, build confidence in their abilities and realize their full potential. Soldier On provides members with a safe environment to challenge themselves and become inspired in ways that they may not have thought possible, contributing to and providing a gateway to enhance ones’ well-being. This re-introduction to an active lifestyle provides opportunities to develop new skills, build confidence and meet peers with similar challenges.
