It’s time to dust off your running shoes and fulfill that New Year’s resolution to get moving more in 2020!

We're recruiting runners and walkers again to join our  Run for a New Start fundraising team  as part of the Ottawa Race Weekend's Scotiabank Charity Challenge, May 23-24, 2020. There are a variety of races for all levels, from 2km all way the up to the full marathon (42km).

Please join our team of runners and walkers in support of a great cause! All funds raised this year will go to support OCISO’s mental health support programs for the most vulnerable newcomers, including women and youth.  


If you register before February 1, you get a discounted registration fee!

Instructions on how to register for Run for a New Start and the link to the registration page can be found here .

OCISO will get a $5 referral award for each runner/walker who registers using this link, so please feel free to share it widely!
