On October 14th, 2017, 9runrun will be hosting its 8th annual run and your help is requested!
9runrun is Ottawa’s very own run in support of local emergency services. It is a community event that supports mental health programs in our community such as Do It For Daron (DIFD), bringing together runners, walkers, volunteers and spectators through its partnership with the Ottawa Police, Paramedic and Fire Departments.
Volunteers are needed to support traffic barricades along the race route, perhaps directly on your street.
Successful barricade management helps to ensure runners are kept safe throughout their run and keeps traffic moving as needed.
Volunteering is a great way to take in the race, be involved in the community, cheer on your friends and neighbours, and for students to collect community service hours!
Youth under 16 years old are welcome when accompanied by an adult.
To date, the race has raised over $140, 000.00!
I would like to encourage all residents to consider helping out with the race for this great cause. More information on specific road closures will be provided in my weekly newsletter in the upcoming weeks.
