The event is a way to raise awareness for military and first-responders suffering from PTSD.
Blake Emmons, Founder of Wounded Warriors Weekend says the event is held to break down the stigma surrounding PTSD.
“To remember these Wounded Warriors are among us, they’re here, they’re our neighbours. So many of them are fighting a war in their minds and keep it a secret.”
The torch will travel throughout Saskatchewan towns and cities and end in Nipawin for a weekend of activities.
