About Tulipathon

Each year, Tulipathon is a great success in thanks to our dedicated volunteers and fundraisers! Several faith groups from the Baha'i, Christian, Jewish, Muslim, and Unitarian communities show up with banners in hand. After the walk, participants relax to enjoy some well-deserved refreshments. Learn more at the Multifaith Housing Initiative website.

The Farook Tareen Award: The Farook Tareen Award was created by MHI to honour the great legacy of the late Dr. Tareen, and is presented each year to the highest fundraiser for affordable housing at Tulipathon. Last year, the First Unitarian Congregation of Ottawa won the trophy with a total of $2,741. 

Banner competition: Every year, faith groups produce banners and carry them proudly during the walk. Judges select the top three banners during the opening ceremonies. Last year's winner was Or Haneshamah, while St. Mark the Evangelist placed second and Knox United was third. The top three teams are presented with plaques at National Housing Day in November. If you belong to a faith group, be sure to get in touch with your fellow walkers and ensure your team has a beautiful banner prepared for May 26! The banners can be professionally printed or homemade.
