2021 Charity


Whether you’re a first responder or a civilian, it’s our goal to make sure everyone can access the mental health services they need.

Help us support our mission for mental health by running (or walking) for First Responders.

Ottawa and surrounding area

The funds raised by Ottawa area 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.
