MADD Ottawa Chapter Annual Events

Candlelight Vigil

The MADD Ottawa candlelight vigil to lend support to victims and survivors of impaired driving crashes was postponed to the fall of 2020 due to COVID-19 self-distancing requirements. Our annual vigil is a candlelight ceremony that includes reflections and the lighting of candles in memory of those killed or injured as a result of impaired driving crashes.

MADD Ottawa wishes to raise public awareness of the human consequences of impaired driving with the hope of preventing further tragedies on the streets and highways in our area.  We will announce the date of our 2020 Candlelight Vigil on our social media platforms and our Chapter website.

Mums for Thanksgiving – October

The Mums for Thanksgiving Campaign started 15 years ago as a means for individuals and local businesses to say thank you at this very special time of year to friends, family, business clients and associates for their support. Having a beautiful plant, in full bloom, delivered to one’s home or place of business is a very nice way of expressing gratitude with a wonderful element of surprise. Please contact us to place your order.

11th Annual Strides for Change

Our annual Strides for Change fundraising event raises funds to help MADD Ottawa heighten awareness of our vital programs and services such as educational and victim support.  Every step taken and pledge collected assists our mission to stop impaired driving and to support victims of this violent crime. The 2020 Strides for Change date will be announced soon!

Project Red Ribbon – Holidays & All Year Round

From November 1 to the first Monday after January 1st, MADD Canada Chapters, Community Leaders, volunteers and supporters will be out in force, distributing millions of red ribbons for Canadians to tie on the vehicles, key chains, purses, briefcases and backpacks.

Project Red Ribbon targets the Christmas and New Year holiday season because it is the busiest time of year on most social calendars. With lots of holiday parties and events, and lots of glasses being raised for toasts, the risk for impaired driving is especially high at that time of year. Our red ribbon, tied to a vehicle antenna, is a reminder of the importance of always driving sober.  Learn more about Project Red Ribbon.
