Frank Ryan Turkey Trot of Hope
Frank Ryan Turkey Trot of Hope is probably the best known school fundraiser in the City of Ottawa. With a 33 year tradition, it is the largest per student charity fundraiser with 100% money raised going to local children charities. Neighbours, relatives and parents sponsor students to walk, jog or run around a 600m track for one hour in order to raise money for charity. The objective of the event is to develop school spirit, collect money for worthwhile causes, teach students to give without receiving monetary rewards, and to run with the desire and effort of individuals such as Terry Fox.
