Ottawa First Responders
The funds raised by 9runrun participants and their donors will support the Ottawa First Responders Foundation
Evidence shows that first responders are at least twice as likely compared to the general population to suffer Post Trauma Stress Disorder (PTSD), due to the risk of the routine exposure to trauma stressors. The average person may experience an average of one traumatic incident in their lifetime. The average first responder will encounter 600 such incidents within their working life. Thanks for supporting members come from within the Ottawa Police, Paramedic and Fire services.
