CIBC Run For The Cure – Sweat for Steph

Every day, 75 Canadians will hear the words “you have breast cancer.” While these Canadians are living longer, healthier lives after a breast cancer diagnosis, there is still so much work to be done.

Many families in our ringette community, including within West Ottawa, have been directly impacted by a breast cancer diagnosis.

This year, some of our members have entered a team in the CIBC Run for the Cure. They are running/walking in memory of Stephanie Nugent who passed away in November 2020 after a long and courageous battle with breast cancer. As a long time coach, assistant coach, and volunteer with West Ottawa, Steph had a positive and far reaching impact on many young women in the West Ottawa community.

This year the Run for the Cure will be held virtually on Sunday October 3rd.

Anyone who would like to honour Steph can visit the link below and join the team “Sweat for Steph”, or make a donation to support those participating.

Although the run is virtual, depending on public health restrictions, it may be possible to gather together to mark the event in a group (or groups).

If you would like more information, you can contact Melanie Mathers-Cote at melandrandy@sympatico.ca

The time has come… Registration for 2021/2022 West Ottawa Ringette is now open!!!

WORA intends to run as close to a normal season as possible, while remaining consistent with other associations within our region, and abiding by the city and region’s guidelines.

Due to some remaining uncertainty surrounding the upcoming season and a deadline of August 1st we have from the City to secure our ice and return without penalty, WORA is providing two registration options to its members FUN2 (formerly U8) to U19.

Option 1: Early Bird Rate! To secure your spot and the early bird rate of $695, register before July 25th, 2021. Full payment is required prior to the deadline to secure this rate.

Option 2: Deposit only! Looking to secure your spot for the upcoming season, but not ready to pay the full registration fee yet? This option is for you! Register now to secure your spot and only pay the deposit of $150. The remaining balance of $575, of the regular rate, will be due on or before August 31st, 2021.

* Note that registrations include the $150 non-refundable deposit in the rate.

** For alternate payment plan arrangements, please contact treasurer@westottawaringette.com and registrar@westottawaringette.com.

As information is received from the City and the Region in regards to restrictions, WORA executives will share it via social media and/or email.
