Ottawa’s Positive “Wave” of Support for the Frontline

It’s been a long haul for our frontline workers. You have likely heard the old adage about holding a glass of water. Hold it for an hour, you’ll have an ache in your arm. Hold it for a day, your arm will feel numb or even paralyzed.  Now try that for over 14 months and through three worsening Covid-19 waves.

Stress and anxiety are like that glass of water. It’s time for a new WAVE!  A WAVE of awareness, honour, gratitude, support and appreciation.

From May 1 – 31, 2021, join Ottawa’s Positive “Wave” of Support for the frontline now – it’s easy! 

  1. Think of a message for frontline workers.
  2. Create a home-made sign or chalk a message on the sidewalk or your driveway.
  3. Interested in prizes? Take a photo, post it on social media with the #ottawaheroes hashtag and tag your local hospital. We’ll be watching, be creative!
  4. Consider making a donation to CHEO in honour of frontline workers.
