Wounded is an independent not-for-profit charity that supports Canadian soldiers wounded overseas. It is primarily a fundraising mechanism that supports existing programs that tend to injured soldiers. In four years, Wounded has raised approximately $1-million. The health of this fund is a credit to the benevolence of Canadian corporations and citizens alike.

The Salute Ride is equally well-supported by local supporters. Performances in Oshawa will include The Highland Creek Pipes & Drums as well as Michael T. Wall "The Singing Newfoundlander" accompanied by Wolfe Milestone. In Cobourg, Zsuzsana Summer will perform a special song at the lunch stop. At the end, refreshments are supplied by the Tim Hortons of Trenton.
