Tamarack Homes Ottawa Race Weekend 2012
Support VON – and help people live independently in our community!
For many Canadians, VON (the Victorian Order of Nurses) means independence, support and a caring partner in times of need.
VON Canada has been serving the people of Ottawa Region and across Canada with home care and community support programs since 1897. VON's programs are designed to help people live independently in their own homes and communities as they recover from surgery or face illness, disability, and even the end of life. VON's nurses and volunteers provide various services, both in people's homes as well as clinic locations. VON also supports the family and friend caregivers through our Caregiver Connect program and other support services.
Your support will allow us to reach out to more people as we strive to address the emerging health and social needs of our community! Please consider running or walking for VON in the Ottawa Race Weekend – or make a donation to help the VON team raise funds today.
