BENEFITING: Off The Mat, Into The World
SATURDAY, September 1st - SECOND EDITION OF SOAKER WARS: BEASTS OF BOERS
For centuries Strathcona Park has been a peaceful park for children and families to vacate from the urban sprawl. Now for one day, we will resurrect the historical value of the park as we take on its true origin as an artillery range for the second Boers war.
Let's take on our inner barbarian and form the BEASTS OF BOERS WAR.
What's it all about?
Come cool off from the heat by participating in Ottawa's SECOND humongo-scale water-fight! All you need is a bathing suit (or clothes you don't mind getting... soaked) and a watergun or some sort of water dispersing device! We are hoping for a HUGE turnout so everyone is welcome! Tell all your friends! This will be massively FUN!
Everyone will meet at STRATHCONA Park in Sandy Hill Ottawa at 1:30PM on August 18th and engage in a team-based water-fight of the likes never before seen in North-America! And the best part, it is all for a charitable cause, that of the Global Seva Challenge, an initiative by Off the Mat, Into the World (OTM), a nonprofit which uses the power of yoga to inspire conscious, sustainable activism and ignite grassroots social change.
When do I have to drag myself out of bed?
1:30 – 4PM
You need not participate for the entire 4 hours but you are most welcome to!
Where is this fabulous activity taking place?
Strathcona Park in Sandy Hill, Ottawa at the corner of Range Rd. and Laurier Ave.

Most importantly... Why?
First and foremost this is a great way to cool down from the hot hot summer heat... But as a double-whammy of philanthropic goodness, we are also raising funds for a noble cause: the Global Seva Challenge. In 2012, the Seva Challenge will be focused on the issue of sex trafficking in India and worldwide.
