Chief Bordeleau and Ottawa Police Services are excited to be partnering with Rideauwood this year for their annual Walkathon. A number of School Resource Officers will also be participating in the event.
Inspector Don Sweet has put together a team of officers who are issuing a challenge to any and all community teams to collect the most pledges. “Rideauwood is a great cause that does so much for the health and safety of our community that we just had to get behind them,” says Sweet. “The work they do makes them a natural choice for our support.”
“Clean Water Works is proud to be a corporate sponsor for Rideauwood Addiction Family Services. We believe many people are not aware just how serious drug and alcohol abuse has become in our community. It could be a loved one, a friend or a co-worker who needs the treatment and support that Rideauwood provides. As Ottawa continues to expand, Rideauwood must continue to develop resources and infrastructure to keep pace with our city’s growth—and can only do so with generous contributions from individuals, foundations and corporations.
CWW chose to support Rideauwood because of their leadership in addiction services for over 30 years. We understand that the demand for their services far outweighs what they are financially capable of delivering.
Rideauwood provides a quality treatment program that treats all residents with dignity, respect and kindness. This is evident from the very first contact with a facility member.
In a lifetime it is likely that someone we know, or even ourselves will develop some sort of substance abuse issue. Through donations and fundraising events, Rideauwood is able to provide the education, services, and accessibility to cost-effective and compassionate treatment.”
