June 13th – Britannia Beach – Lace up those running shoes!
Causeway will be the Charity of the Event for Somersault Event Series‘ Britannia Beach Run and Ottawa River Triathlon on June 13th! Run, walk, or come cheer on participants – it’s sure to be a day of fun and fundraising for the programs and services of Causeway Work Centre.
Why we run:
Maybe it’s a friend. Maybe it’s a neighbour. Maybe it’s you. We all know someone with mental illness – it is nothing to be ashamed of and should not stop you from reaching your potential! At Causeway, we have the pleasure of helping people overcome barriers to employment and support them as they work hard to achieve their goals. On June 13th, we run (or walk!) to reduce the stigma associated with mental illness in the workplace, and to raise some money for the supported employment programs of Causeway Work Centre.
How will money be raised?
A portion of all run registrations is tax-deductible and donated directly to Causeway. Runners are also encouraged to collect pledges.
On race day, enjoy food, refreshments, and a silent auction with tons of goodies! All proceeds will go to Causeway Work Centre.
June 12th – we need volunteers to help us stuff race kits the day before the race. Morning and afternoon shifts available.
June 13th – on race day, volunteers will be needed to collect donations, work at the registration desk, provide assistance on the race course, set-up and take-down of tents and tables, selling refreshments, and helping with the silent auction. Various shifts are available between 6:30 am and 2:30 pm.
All volunteers will be rewarded with snacks, beverages, and good company.
Please email us at email@example.com indicating the date and time you would like to volunteer, along with any task preferences.
