Dancing with the Docs is an annual fundraising initiative in support of patient care and research at The Ottawa Hospital. Guests will be treated to a delicious dinner and an entertaining evening, at the Hilton Lac-Leamy, filled with a variety of dances from salsa to rhumba.
Each year eight physicians and researchers from The Ottawa Hospital will trade their lab coats for dance shoes. After volunteering much of their time training rigorously for months with professional dance partners from Arthur Murray Dance Studio, and fundraising in support of our hospital, the doctors compete for the Medicine Ball trophy in front of 800 guests and a panel of three judges. Each Dancing Doc will be judged on both their dance moves and their fundraising efforts.
Last year, a grand total of $433,000 was raised in support of cutting-edge research and care. This was the most successful Dancing with the Docs in TOH history!
