Date: Saturday, May 26, 2018 to Sunday, May 27, 2018
Location: Ottawa Race Weekend
Ever thought about taking part in Ottawa Race Weekend, Canada’s largest race weekend? Make 2018 your year to accomplish this goal and support the Heart Institute while you are at it.
It’s easy: Register for any Race Weekend event by visiting runottawa.ca and completing the Scotiabank Charity Challenge component. Here you can choose to support the Heart Institute with your registration and, if you choose to, you can create a personal fundraising page to encourage your friends and family to do the same.
Once you have chosen to support the Heart Institute, you will have access to race-related perks including a Team Heart t-shirt. Plus to encourage and support those who may be intimidated and as a special incentive, the Heart Institute’s Heart Wise exercise group invites you to be part of a team of participants who want a little extra support or company during training and at the event. As a member of the Heart Institute Heart Wise team, you will choose between a 5 or 10KM run or walk and you will be supported along the way with training tips, a group warm up, and company during the race if you choose. If you run or walk at Ottawa Race Weekend this year, we encourage our friends, staff, patients and their loved ones, donors, supporters, and alumni members to join our team and/or to do so in support of the Heart Institute through the Scotiabank Charity Challenge!
