The Event

Dancing with the Docs, presented by MD Financial Management, 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 physicians, nurses and researchers from The Ottawa Hospital 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 participants compete for the Medicine Ball trophy in front of 800 guests and a panel of judges. Each dancer will be judged on both their moves and their fundraising efforts.

Last year, a grand total of $455,156 was raised in support of cutting-edge research and care. This was the most successful Dancing with the Docs in TOH history!
