Run for a Reason

Event Detailed Description

Did you know The Ottawa Hospital Breast Health Centre sees the highest patient volume than any other centre of its kind in Canada?

Perhaps you know one of the thousands of cancer patients who are part of the more than 180 clinical trials we are conducting at The Ottawa Hospital.

Or maybe you’ve read about the innovative research being conducted at The Ottawa Hospital, such as the work of cancer researcher Dr. John Bell, our Chair in spinal cord research Dr. Eve Tsai, or how Dr. Bernard Thébaud is using stem cells to repair the lungs of premature babies? These are just three of our 1700 scientists and clinicians who are researching new and better ways to treat patients.

The Ottawa Hospital distinguishes itself every day in its pursuit of providing the best care to patients. But this excellence of care wouldn’t be possible without the outstanding community support demonstrated every year through Run for a Reason. Since 1998, Run for a Reason has raised more than $10.2 million to make a difference in health care at The Ottawa Hospital.

Join us during Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend May 28-29, 2016, and make a difference!
