Run for a Reason 2019

Each step has impact. Each participant has a story. Each dollar could change the world.

You have the power to ensure patients have access to world-class care, and that research continues to break down barriers, right here at The Ottawa Hospital.

Better yet, bring a team together of work colleagues, family or friends to raise funds to support an area of The Ottawa Hospital that matters most to you.  You can walk or run and your teammates can participate in different races. But, you’ll be united by the cause.

Register for Canada’s biggest marathon weekend. Fundraise for innovative care and leading-edge research. Feel the rush as you cross the finish line at Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend with thousands cheering you on. It’s an experience you won’t soon forget!

Imagine the fun. Imagine the impact. Imagine the future.
