Runway for HOPE is a Not-For-Profit organization that made its debut in 2012. Having previously worked in the entertainment industry, the Runway for HOPE team has always had a craving for bringing together the people of the community. Luckily, their background in business endowed the team with the knowledge required to kick start Runway for HOPE’s own initiative. They decided that partnering with a local charity was the best way to make their vision come to life. At an early stage, they developed a sustainable relationship with the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario Foundation (CHEO Foundation) and continues to successfully deliver above and beyond their expectations. Over time, the team worked hard to levitate Runway for HOPE on the Ottawa scene which allowed Runway for HOPE to donate more than $30,000 to CHEO. To this day, Runway for HOPE, continues to grow and strive for success.
Runway for Hope Ottawa started a new movement by connecting those working in the fashion industry, with their supporters, to hold fashion-based events and to engage Ottawa citizens in local fashion. Runway for Hope Ottawa also promotes local musicians by providing them with an opportunity to perform on stage. Currently, Runway for Hope Ottawa hosts an annual charity fashion event. In the future, the organization plans to increase the number of events held throughout the year.
