GoFundMe campaign to establish
Capt. Kevin Hagen memorial scholarship

A fundraising campaign to create a memorial scholarship in honour of Capt. Kevin Hagen is receiving widespread support. The RCAF pilot was among six Canadian Armed Forces members who died in the CH-148 Cyclone helicopter crash in the Mediterranean Sea near Greece April 29.

Organized by family, friends and former Royal Military College classmates of Hagen, in collaboration with his former air cadet squadron, 848 Royal Roads Squadron in Victoria, the campaign aims to raise $15,000 to establish a pilot scholarship for a member of the squadron. As of mid-August, the campaign had raised $13,920. Hagen, 30, was born in Nanaimo but spent time in Ladysmith, Quadra Island and Victoria.
Hagen’s remains returned home to Vancouver Island and were escorted by military and civilian dignitaries in a police-escorted motorcade on June 27.
