The 2017 Community Kicks was a great success.
Congrats again to Youth Futures – Avenir Jeunesse for taking home the cup in a beautiful and fast paced match against the OCISO “Friends of the Family II” team in front of over 6000 people. Thanks again Ottawa Fury FC and OSEG – and our sponsors Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est and Partner Ottawa Community Immigrant Services Organization
A massive THANK you to two great settlement agencies in Ottawa for their unique support in making #Communitykicks a great success. Thank you Catholic Centre for Immigrants Ottawa and Ottawa Community Immigrant Services Organization for your in-kind support and push to inform clients about this uplifting event- we hope goals of connecting were met and everyone feels a better sense of community and sense of welcome. As the Community Cup did for 13 years, We continued the tradition or “kept the ball rolling” this year with your support. We hope the participants have something to talk about for years – or at least until June 2018 – for the 2nd annual Community Kicks that is already shaping up to be bigger!
