In 2010 I incorporated fundraising into my running activities for the first time. When I registered for the Ottawa Marathon I also decided to raise funds for the Ottawa Hospital Foundation which supports improvements in patient care and equipment at The Ottawa Hospital, and groundbreaking research at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute.
As I have mentioned on here already, I am planning to run the Ottawa Marathon again in 2011. I have also decided to raise funds for the Ottawa Hospital Foundation again. As such, my goal for 2011 will be twofold. In addition to attempting to qualify for the Boston Marathon I will also be to raise more than the $250 I raised for the Ottawa Hospital Foundation.
Please be generous and join me in supporting a great cause your gift will go a long way to helping the Ottawa hospital Foundation continue its lifesaving work in the community. Please visit this link.
