Tulipathon Annual Charity Walk
Thank you everyone for coming out on a beautiful Sunday afternoon and showing your support for MHI and affordable housing in Ottawa on May 27. Plus a big thank you to those who have made a generous donation to support our tenants. 100% of all funds raised for Tulipathon will go towards providing subsidies for the families who reside in one of our communities. To-date, we have raised approximately $26,600 in cash, cheque, and online donations... but it's not over yet! We will be accepting donations until Sat., June 30, so the Dr. Farook Tareen Award (awarded to the group that fundraised the most) is still up for grabs!
Congrats to our banner winners!
The winners of the 2018 banner competition were:
Each year, the event is a great success in thanks to a number of dedicated volunteers. Several faith groups from the Baha'i, Christian, Jewish, Muslim, and Unitarian show up with banners in hand. Community leaders, like Mayor Jim Watson and City Councillors, join us in support. Community members from a variety of sectors eagerly line up to register for the walk and turn in pledge forms for the fundraiser. After the walk, participants relax to enjoy some well-deserved refreshments.
About the Dr. Farook Tareen Award
The 2017 Dr. Farook Tareen Award was presented to St. John's Anglican Church. This award was created by MHI to honour the great legacy of the late Dr. Tareen and is presented each year to the highest fundraiser for affordable housing at Tulipathon. With grateful appreciation, we congratulate Temple Israel for their win last year! We are adding up totals to determine who will win for 2018.
