Boomer’s Legacy is named after Corporal Andrew “Boomer” Eykelenboom, a dedicated soldier and a Canadian Armed Forces medic killed by a suicide bomber on August 11, 2006.

Andrew was committed to saving lives and helping the Afghan people realize freedom. His death was the catalyst to creating Boomer’s Legacy to help men and women in uniform make a positive difference in the lives of others. Andrew’s humanitarian spirit lives on through Boomer’s Legacy, committed to “Helping our Troops Help Others.”
