Program Info

In the span of only 6 years, we hosted 11 successful volleyball tournaments with over 1,000 participants and raised over $10,000 which was used to sponsor runners representing Team Diabetes at the Ottawa Race Weekend every year.

Although we have had great success with the volleyball tournaments, we reached a plateau of new and continuous interested participants. As a result of this, we are looking to implement a few changes within our organization.

Our biggest aspiration this year is using alternative approaches to collaborate with different groups in the community and the university to organize new events that will offer more volunteering opportunities for our club members. On top of more volunteering opportunities, we want to offer them an impactful opportunity within the community.  

One project we are very enthusiastic about implementing is an educational hands-on program for students in grades between 6-8. We believe that educational and interactive workshops for elementary school students will be advantageous for many reasons, which are highlighted in the proposal we created.

Please find below the proposal for a program/workshop that will be undoubtedly beneficial for both groups; it will be a valuable volunteering opportunity for our team and a unique learning experience for the students. We also attached a copy of the program pamphlet, that describes the types of activities, anticipated program schedules, registration/application form, and a permission form.

We hope that through this proposal, we demonstrate the immense passion and devotion we have for this program as well as the benefits that are presented with the integration of this program.  We know this will be an enriching experience for the students, teachers, program hosts, and the uOttawa Team Diabetes volunteers.

If you are interested in partnering with uOttawa Team Diabetes to bring forth a great initiative for younger students, please fill out the registration form below and we will contact you as soon as possible. We thank you in advance for your interest and we are very excited to collaborate with ….
