What's New

A New Location in Stittsville

When D.A. Moodie School closed recently, TFKO was looking for a new location that would benefit from our program. We are excited to be serving teens attending the Frederick Banting Alternative Secondary Program in Stittsville this fall.  A big thank you goes out to everyone who helped us to quickly relocate our container and bikes, to the volunteers who stepped up to lead rides, and to our school contacts for their fantastic support.

TFKO Launches New Site in Carleton Place

This fall, TFKO is celebrating the successful launch of a new program site at the Carembeck Community Centre in Carleton Place. We are happy to welcome a fantastic group of kids to our after-school program. Special thanks go out to the local volunteers who work with us each week, as well as the Ontario Trillium Foundation and our community sponsors, Bergeron|Clifford LLP, Collins Barrow LLP, Mitchell’s Independent Grocer and Bushtukah.

TFKO would like to thank Mementos for their support.

Each year we are able to offer a few of our volunteers a token of appreciation for their service because Mementos kindly provides us with beautiful mementos through trophies and plaques capturing the volunteers dedication.

A Special Thanks to TITUS.com

Titus, a local software company wanted to do something different for their Engineering Department Christmas event. Matthew McCormick,  a Software Develop Manager at Titus and avid cyclist came up with the idea to do a bike build as a team building activity that could also support a local charity. Through his local bike shop, Full Cycle he was introduced to Trips for Kids Ottawa and felt we would be an ideal organisation to benefit from the event. The Engineering department was split up into 12 teams with each team using tools supplied by Trips for Kids Ottawa built a bike and then had to take a test ride around the room. It was a fun event and at the end Trips for Kids Ottawa received 12 brand new bikes or our program.

Thank you TITUS!!
