My Story…

Doing whatever small amount I can in honour of my loved and missed friend, Bianca Barratt. She spent decades battling cancer literally without complaint and working to raise awareness -- I'm just starting with running 5k! In her own words, "just know that whatever it is that you do in the fight against cancer, whether it is making a donation, or just being somebody to lean on, you are the hope in the fight against cancer, and I whole-heartedly appreciate it. Thank you."


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).
