Win a Race Entry

Hey everyone, as you know I am running the Ottawa Marathon and raising money for the neurology unit at the Ottawa Hospital this year.  For more detail on why I run for a reason you can read my full post here. 

This year my goal is to beat  last year’s fundraising total of $900. To help reach that goal I am offering to register one lucky donor for the Race Weekend event of their choice. Here is your chance to support a great cause and win free entry. Click here and  donate between now and next Monday for your chance to win!


Why I Run For a Reason

This year, I’m running the Ottawa Marathon for the seventh consecutive year. And for the sixth consecutive year I’m raising money for the Ottawa Hospital as part of my participation in the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend.

I began raising money for the Ottawa Hospital because of the vital role it plays in our community. And after suffering a ruptured appendix late last year – I experienced first hand the excellent care provided by the Ottawa Hospital. But they can’t do it all without community support – and that is where you and I come in.

This year I will be asking for your help to raise funds directed to Neurology  at Ottawa Hospital. I raise money for Neurology in memory of my father, who passed away following a stroke in 2012.

Last year, we raised $800. This year, with your support I hope to raise $1000.

Help me Help the Ottawa Hospital


As you are already aware, I will be running the Ottawa Marathon in May.

In addition to running the marathon, I will be raising funds for the Ottawa Hospital Foundation again this year. 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.

My goals for 2011 are to my time of 3:22 at Prince Edward County Marathon in October and to surpass $250 I raised  for the Ottawa Hospital Foundation from last year.
