Our story…

MEMC Crew - We make every moment count!

Please join us as we walk/run for a reason at Ottawa Race Weekend May 23 and 24, 2020. MEMC Crew will be taking part in all the distances; 2k, 5k, 10k, half marathon and marathon. Which distance will you cover?

I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer 7 years ago. I went through Whipple surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, and gastric bypass surgery - all at The Ottawa Hospital. Pancreatic cancer has a 5 year survival rate of only 10% ... I'm extremely fortunate and grateful to still be alive ..... loving life, giving back, and inspiring hope.

I'm also truly grateful for the family and friends that join me, as part of MEMC Crew, to walk/run at ORW, raise awareness of pancreatic cancer, inspire hope and encourage a more physically active lifestyle for others, and to raise money for cancer research at The Ottawa Hospital.

Hope you can join us!


You have the power to ensure patients at The Ottawa Hospital have access to world-class care, and that research continues to break down barriers. Register for Canada’s biggest marathon weekend and Run for a Reason to support The Ottawa Hospital! Better yet, bring a team together of work colleagues, family, or friends to raise funds to support an area of The Ottawa Hospital that matters most to you.
