Hi all! Mike here. As we live through the Covid-19 pandemic, I have many reasons to be grateful. My home - a safe space to physically distance - is a big one.
I’m also grateful for Shepherds of Good Hope, for their health, harm reduction + shelter programs; and for their (expanding) permanent, supportive housing. As some community supports have had to close during the pandemic, operational demands at Shepherds - alongside efforts to create safe housing solutions - have only increased. Ending homelessness has never been a more urgent public health priority.
And, I’m grateful for the ability to run. This year’s Ottawa Marathon will be a solo affair; I'm mapping my 42k route, and plan to run on Saturday, June 13. While running solo, one way I’ll feel supported is through our collective support for community. If you’re able, please join me w/ a donation to Shepherds!
With you by our side we can create homes for all, community for all and hope for all! Register for any race, select Shepherds of Good Hope as your official charity, and fundraise to give hope to Ottawa’s homeless.
Avec vous à nos côtés, nous pouvons créer des maisons pour tous, une communauté pour tous et un espoir pour tous!
