9RunRun

A reminder that 9RunRun will be taking place this Saturday, October 14. This is a great event in our community that supports Ottawa’s fire, police and paramedic services. Please note that some roads will have limited access throughout the day as a result.

 

Funds raised through 9RunRun will support two key initiatives: Is It Just Me? Conversations about Youth Mental Health and the DIFD Mach-Gaensslen Chair in Suicide Prevention Research at The Royal. Is It Just Me? is an educational awareness program that helps students understand how their thoughts and feelings affect their mental health.

 

Join in on the fun and cheer on the runners!  Stittsville road closures related to the event are posted below. Please plan ahead if you will be traveling in the area.
