Supporting Mental Health in the Ottawa Region
It is part of our mandate to be a fundraising initiative to bring awareness and support to mental health.  This is the fourth year for the FOTR event but the first year for the Youth of Manotick Association (YOMA). To date, FOTR has raised close to $15,000 for mental health organizations in Ottawa.  The Youth of Manotick Association is dedicated to providing a safe, inclusive and socially accepting environment to help support local and area youth build positive relationships, to experience new opportunities and to connect them to their community. Youth with serious additions to drugs and alcohol, mental health, isolation and boredom were also highlighted as issues affecting rural youth. Rural youth did not have a safe place to gather nor a means of accessing these resources.
