The 2014 edition of Run Ottawa’s Canada Day Road Races, presented by Bushtukah, continues to be an event for running enthusiasts of all ages and this year for the first time it will also be a fundraiser for the Queensway Carleton Hospital!
Now in its 27th year this run has grown in size and popularity with a 1K run for children under 13, a Tot Trot for little tikes under 5 and a 5 and 10K road run. The course which begins on Teron Drive and meanders through Kanata’s Beaverbrook community and provides a fitting backdrop for this family run which raises funds for the Queensway Carleton Hospital’s campaign of advancing care in the community for people of all ages!
Backpack donations for the Nepean, Rideau and Osgoode area’s Tool 4 School Program are appreciated and accepted. This program, created by the Nepean, Rideau and Osgoode Community Resource Centre was introduced in the spring of 2000 after local news outlets pointed out the need for school supplies for local children. Over 400 backpacks are needed annually for local children, and your donation can truly make a positive impact on their life.
Donation drop-offs can be made before August 16, 2014 at 2720 Queensview Dr. Suite 1175 or please contact Julie at email@example.com.
