Forward from OCISO: Would you like to Run or Walk for Refugees?

Thousands of refugees and immigrants will be making Ottawa their new home this year.

You can help them by registering for the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend (May 28-29) and joining our volunteer team of OCISO fundraisers (the Ottawa Community Immigrant Services Organization).

As a thank you, our first 100 runner or walker volunteers who commit to raising over $100 will receive a professional racing shirt.

Register to fundraise with us and ensure that arriving refugees and immigrants feel welcomed and supported in our city!
