UPDATE: Ottawa Tourette Trek 2022 will be going Virtual

After much consideration, we have decided to Trek virtually this year.

There was much damage caused to our Trekking area by the storm this past weekend and we feel that this is the safest thing to do. With the continued disruption of hydro service and many roads still blocked, we do not want to further disrupt efforts of the first line responders that are in dire need at the moment. Traffic lights in the surrounding areas are not working could potentially put some of our Trekkers in danger at certain intersections.

We are notifying everyone on our end via social media; however, can you please share this with all your supporters and teammates as well.

And so with your individual virtual treks, we ask that you stay safe; spread awareness and be creative! Send your pics to info@tsottawa.com. Or post them on our Facebook page, Tourette Ottawa. We look forward to seeing your photos. #trekfortourette #touretteawareness #tourettecanada #tsottawa #touretteottawa #tealfortourette

Message from the President of Tourette Canada – Ottawa Chapter

Another year has come and gone, and I hope that everyone is able to spend time with loved ones this Holiday Season. 

I am sure that you are (as I am) exhausted; but please remember that all pandemics come to an end, and this one will too. This Holiday Season I will be reflecting on how blessed I am to work with such an incredible group of people at the TS Ottawa Chapter. I am beyond thankful for their hard work and dedication in providing support to all.

Wishing you much happiness and peace this Holiday Season and much joy in the New Year. 

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
