Your Mission, Should You Choose to Accept It…

The third annual TELUS Mission Possible: Half Marathon and 5K event will be held this Sunday November 10th at the Marshes Golf Course in Kanata. It’s an incredible show of community support for The Ottawa Mission – and you don’t have to be an experienced runner to take part!

After the run, participants can enjoy brunch in the Marshes clubhouse and participate in a silent auction.  We are also thrilled this year to have Afghanistan war veteran and competitor on CTV’s Amazing Race, Jody Mitic, as the special guest speaker!   Jody and his brother Cory placed an ‘amazing’ second in the inaugural Canadian competition, and Jody has a truly inspirational story to tell.

Last year, the 300 runners who participated in the TELUS Mission Possible event raised close to $7,000 for The Ottawa Mission. A portion of the proceeds from this event helps support a special program at The Mission that helps men who are homeless learn to run and gain access to activities that promote physical fitness.  The rest of the proceeds support  the other life-changing programs at The Ottawa  Mission, like job training, addiction treatment and a learning centre.

Want to run and help make our mission possible?  Register today at to join in the fun!

Registration closes at midnight on Thursday November 7th, so don’t delay!

We extend our heartfelt thanks to our sponsors TELUS, our presenting sponsor, and to Mizuno, The Marshes, and the Running Room for their wonderful support.
