Help support those most in need during these unprecedented times

This year, I'm running my first full marathon (42.2km) for the United Way Ottawa! The United Way's mission is to bring people and resources together to build great communities for all. Give today to help us make making measurable, lasting change across our region. I will be training hard and donating 10 cents per kilometer I run from January 1st to May 23, 2020.


As a proud resident of the Ottawa Region, I’ve seen how our community is rising to the cause to support those most in need during these unprecedented times. We’ve witnessed grassroots groups form, businesses adapting to meet our needs, neighbours helping neighbours and volunteers stepping up.

While Race Weekend is transitioning to a virtual experience, we still have a chance to make a difference. 

That’s why I’m continuing to support our community through United Way East Ontario’s response to COVID-19.

The money we raise together will help vulnerable seniors, provide basic needs and life essentials, ensure the social services sector can continue to offer their vital services, strengthen mental health services and support our community’s incredible volunteers.

We’ve been there for one another through floods, ice storms—even tornadoes. 

Today, we need to rally together more than ever before.
