The Foundation in Action
HOPE Volleyball SummerFest
The OCTC Foundation had the privilege to be one of the 2011 HOPE Volleyball SummerFest recipient charities. Held on July 16 at Mooney's Bay in central Ottawa, this immensely popular annual event attracted more than 10,000 participants and $25,000 was allocated to OCTC's Recreation Therapy (RT) Program.
OCTC's Recreation Therapy Program provides the skills and resources for children and youth with physical or developmental disabilities to successfully participate in meaningful recreation in their community, if they are not already able to do so. The Program includes a variety of activities, such as adapted waterskiing, swimming, photograph, sledge hockey, and wheelchair tennis.
A very special thank you to our 50 volunteers who kindly gave their time and energy to make this happen!
