VOCALOttawa2018, Ottawa, Saturday, 05. May 2018

VOCALOttawa 2018, Voices of Canadians About Lyme Disease. Please join us for a Lyme Disease Awareness Event called VOCAL, Voices of Canadians about Lyme Disease. The inaugural event, VOCAL Ottawa 2017, was held June 3rd, 2017 on the grounds of Parliament Hill. Building on the great success of this event, VOCAL is back as VOCAL Ottawa 2018 and it will be held Saturday May 5th, from 3-6 pm, Ottawa City Hall, Main Foyer. The theme of VOCAL Ottawa 2018 is: “Are you and your family concerned about Lyme Disease”, including children and pets.

Lyme Disease numbers in Canada are on the rise exponentially and it is an illness which is both grossly underfunded and under recognized. Our goal is to raise awareness in the general public as to the risks and severity of Lyme Disease, especially to our children and pets, and as well highlight the plight of those currently living with Lyme Disease.

Lyme Disease is an especially serious concern in Ottawa. In 2017 alone, the city was declared an endemic area, the percentage of ticks carry Lyme Disease doubled and the human cases of Lyme Disease more than doubled in number. For the first time ever, the City of Ottawa has proclaimed May 2018 as “Lyme Disease Awareness Month” and the Mayor will be kicking off VOCAL Ottawa 2018 by reading this proclamation!

We have extended invitations to various speakers such as politicians, local, provincial and federal; Lyme Disease advocates both local and national; and professionals working in the field of Lyme Disease such Naturopathic Doctors and Veterinarians. In addition to speakers, VOCAL Ottawa 2018 will include an Information Fair, featuring related local businesses.

Thank you for your interest in sponsorship opportunities for VOCAL Ottawa 2018.

Lyme disease is the fastest-growing vector borne disease in Canada. Its numbers are vastly under-reported and patients who go undiagnosed and untreated can be stricken with debilitating symptoms for years afterward. In Ottawa, our Nation’s Capital, 2017 was an especially serious year for Lyme Disease, seeing the City declared an endemic area for Lyme Disease, the percentage of ticks carry Lyme Disease doubled and the human cases of Lyme Disease more than doubled in number.

The goal of VOCAL Ottawa 2018 is to raise awareness about this potentially debilitating but little-understood illness, especially highlighting the risks to families with children and pets.

By sponsoring our event, you will have the opportunity to show solidarity with Canadians affected by the disease, particularly those living in the National Capital Region. Funds raised will be used to cover the numerous costs associated with orchestrating this event such as: travel and accommodation for guest speakers, costs of the rental of audio-visual and sound equipment, printing, and much more! By allying yourself with this growing cause, your company will be in a position to establish a long-standing relationship with a growing cause that will become increasingly important to Canadians in the coming years and decades.
