Walk or Run for a New Start!
Help make refugees feel welcome in Canada
There are many ways to show your support for refugees and welcome them to our community. The Ottawa Community Immigrant Services Organization (OCISO) invites you to participate in one of these.
We invite you to join our “Run for a New Start” team of walkers and runners and train for one of the 2km, 5km, 10km, 21km or 42km races as part of the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend, May 27-28.
After raising $12,451 in our inaugural 2016 event, the “Run for a New Start” fundraising team has set ourselves the very ambitious goal of raising $20,000 this year, in support of OCISO’s increasingly important programs working with refugee and immigrant youth here in Ottawa.
We invite all runners and walkers to sign up and join our “Run for a New Start” fundraising team. Volunteers who commit to raising $100 will receive one of our distinctive Tshirts!
In addition, this year Beau’s Brewery is sponsoring a “workplace challenge”, so this is a chance to organize your friends where you work and raise funds together for OCISO’s work.
For registration information, please contact OCISO’s volunteer coordinator, David Rain at firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit ociso.org/run-for-a-new-start.
Thank you for helping refugees and immigrants
feel welcomed and supported in our city!
