Support Mark in his mission to raise $50,000 for the Ottawa Hospital!
Your donation will give hope to patients who depend on clinical trials.
A few months ago in iRun magazine, I put together a runner's bucket list, which included a goal of raising $50,000 in a single run. I'm hoping you can help me achieve that goal at the Ottawa Marathon in May. As the captain of the Run for Research team, I'm trying to help build a virtual clinical trial lab and further life-saving research at The Ottawa Hospital.
You'll have a chance to win some amazing prices if you donate by midnight on Wednesday, May 23.
In addition, Mark will match all donations that day up to $2,500.
Winners will be announced the following day.
Please donate here.
The donor who contributes the largest amount to support Mark on Wednesday will win a weekend stay at the Whitewater Village, a luxury cottage club on the Ottawa River. This prize, valued at $800, was generously donated by Windmill Development Group.
All other donors who've donated to Mark's team, including those who donated before Wednesday, will be entered in a draw for the following prizes:
- Weekend stay at the Ottawa Marriott ~ valued at $400
- Two Timex Ironman Elite GPS watches ~ valued at $200 each
- iRun gear package ~ valued at $100
This is an ambitious goal, so I need all the help I can get. Running the marathon will be the easy part compared to coming up with the money I've committed to raising. Please help me give hope to patients whose only chance for survival may be a clinical trial. Thanks for your support!
