Canadian Cadet General Order (CANCDTGEN)

Victory March

  1. Victory March, reference A., is a new challenge, launched by Military Personnel Command/Chief of Military Personnel (MILPERSCOM/CMP), where Canadians can virtually march alongside members of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF).
  2. The goal of this challenge is to support and share in our military teams' preparation for the Nijmegen Marches which highlight the symbolic relationship that unites Canada and the Netherlands.
  3. Participation includes walking/rucking one of four distances (2 km, 5 km, 10 km or 20 km with a 10 kg rucksack), on any two days between 1 and 9 May 2021.
  4. The Commander Cadets and Junior Canadian Rangers (Comd CJCR) encourages members of the Canadian Cadet Organizations (CCO) to virtually participate in this year’s inaugural Victory March.
  5. While participation in this challenge is sanctioned by the Comd CJCR, it is not to be conducted by corps/squadrons/patrols en-mass due to the current COVID-19 situation.
  6. Those corps/squadrons/patrols that choose to participate must do so in accordance with local public health measures and current CCO policies. Wearing of uniforms, including Field Training Uniforms is not authorized.
  7. Registration is completed through RACEROSTER, reference C, and can be done as individuals or as teams (corps/squadrons/patrols can establish their own team if desired). Proceeds from the challenge will support the Boomer’s Legacy charity.
  8. CJCR has identified the 8 May 2021 as CJCR Victory March Day. Participants are encouraged to show their support by sharing posts, videos, pictures on our various social media platforms.
