We Run for a Reason

Every step you take will help transform healthcare at The Ottawa Hospital — creating a better tomorrow for us all.

It’s time to make every step count.

On May 27-28, join us at Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend, Canada’s largest hybrid running/walking event, to help raise critical funds for research and patient care at The Ottawa Hospital.

Courez pour une raison

Your race. Your pace.

Your reason to run.

Whether you’re a marathon warrior or love a brisk walk, every step you take has the power to ensure patients — your family, friends, colleagues, and neighbours — can access the latest, most advanced care when they need it most. 

One step can change lives.
Many steps can change the world.

Bringing together a team of friends or colleagues to Run for a Reason is not only more fun, but you’ll also make a BIGGER impact on the future of healthcare in our region.

Bonus: For every person you refer using our unique code, Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend will make an additional $5 donation to our hospital! 

Ready to lace up?

Move today. Impact tomorrow. Help create a brighter future for all of us.

Get in the mood to walk, run, or roll with the tunes from our Spotify playlists!
