Victoria, B.C.  The Rotary Club of Victoria has honoured the Western Canada ambassador of Wounded Warriors Canada with the highest honor Rotary makes to non-Rotarians.
Captain Jacqueline Zweng, of the Regional Cadet Support Unit (Pacific) received the medallion and certificate appointing her a Paul Harris Fellow, before a crowd at the Wounded Warriors Gala on Saturday, February 8. 
Wounded Warriors Canada was established in 2006 to support ill and injured Canadian Armed Forces members, veterans and first responders and their families.  Today the organization is a direct mental health service provider facilitated by a clinical team across Canada.
Faced with battling the ravages of breast cancer Captain Zweng, selflessly turned her attention to the work of Wounded Warriors in support of traumatically injured Canadian Forces members and civilian first responders. Despite debilitating cancer treatments, she has participated in grueling fund-raising runs and bicycle tours that are the hallmark of Wounded Warriors activities. She has served as director of the BC Wounded Warriors Run and the Highway of Heroes Bike Ride. She led the Battlefield Bike Ride in Europe.  She has been instrumental in developing strategic partnerships with many services on Vancouver Island. A short biography is here on the WWC website;                                

President of the Rotary Club of Victoria, Gerald Pash, with past-president Kim McGowan, made the presentation that includes a certificate from Rotary International, a lapel pin and medallion. 
Paul Harris Fellow recipients are usually Rotarians but on rare occasions non-Rotarians may be recognized for their outstanding contributions, exemplifying the highest ideal in Rotary in placing “Service Above Self.”  The recognition is named after Rotary’s founder.
Capt. Zweng joins a remarkable company of people throughout the world, all recognised for their commitment to ‘Service Above Self’ to benefit local and international communities.
