My Story…

On January 29th, 2019, my family received the devastating news that my mom was diagnosed with lung cancer. Since then she has spent countless hours in hospitals, has gone through 2 brain surgeries, a multitude of scans, radiation and chemotherapy sessions. Through all the ups and all the downs and fighting the good fight, my mom is relentless in her demonstration of strength, positivity and fortitude. Even through all of this she continues to think of others over herself. My sister and I have decided to run in/donate to the Ottawa Tamarack Half Marathon in May 2020 to support my mom, as well as, the ever so supportive community fighting cancer.


Help us prove that community is bigger than cancer with the Canadian Cancer Society's Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend running team! Start fundraising today and support leading-edge cancer research, prevention, health promotion, and advocacy and support services.

Register today!

Thanks to our dedicated runners and their supporters, we continue to have more impact, against more cancers, in more communities, than any other cancer charity in Canada. Join us today and help keep up the pace!

To show our appreciation for raising funds, runners raising $300 or more will receive a Canadian Cancer Society running shirt (supplies are limited).
