In February 2016 community leader and MAJIC 100 morning show host ‘Stuntman’ Stu Schwartz was diagnosed with Leukemia. He immediately began his treatment at The Ottawa Hospital and within a few short hours inspired the #StuStrong movement.

Without hesitation, the Ottawa community became highly motivated to give as a show of support for not only Stu, but for so many others who are impacted by cancer each and every day. Stu’s video blogs shared via Facebook and Twitter have quickly inspired many patients battling their own cancers.

At Stu’s request, we are helping direct community efforts to the area of The Ottawa Hospital that matters most to him: Leukemia and Stem Cell Research.

You can make a difference by taking part in one of the following activities. All funds raised support The Ottawa Hospital and will benefit those going through cancer in our community.


Run For a Reason – May 28 & 29
during Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend
Register to run/walk and sign up to fundraise as part of the #StuStrong team, led by MAJIC 100 and CTV Morning Live host, Jeff Hopper.
