Ottawa Race Weekend

23 May, 2020 - 31 May, 2020

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend and Scotiabank Ottawa Marathon have gone digital, and so have we! Starting April 7, we encourage all our Race Weekend participants to join us on a weekly physical distancing activity every Tuesday. Jog, walk, run or wheel at a safe distance to train for your May 23 Race Weekend goal! Be sure to post a picture of your activity on Citizen Advocacy’s Facebook event page and join our online community of movers and fundraisers!

For years the Citizen Advocacy team has raised critical funds while promoting inclusion. This year will be no different. In fact, it is even more crucial this year as opportunities to raise funds have been impacted by the response of our community to keep everyone safe. The work of CA is more important than ever as we ensure the safety of those who are the most vulnerable and doubly isolated during these trying times.

We encourage anyone who is interested in participating and raising funds to reach out to volunteer@able2.org or 613-761-9522 ext. 250

Caregiver Retreat

Caregiver Retreat

The retreat will celebrate the resilience that caregivers share, introduce them to new tools and ways of thinking, demonstrate the importance of connection, and will leave caregivers feeling positive about their role. The goal of the day will be to decrease caregiver stress, provide tools and strategies to assist caregivers in managing their own mental wellness, and provide informative, relaxing and interactive sessions. This is the largest caregiver retreat and conference in Ontario. Last year we had nearly 200 in-person attendees and 2000+ virtual viewers.
