The 2016 Ottawa-Gatineau March raised $63,253.61! This is more than $13,000 over the original goal!.
All of the money will support Myeloma research and at least half will contribute directly to myeloma research initiatives at The Ottawa Hospital. A benefit to us all!
Thank you to all those whose generous donations helped us achieve and surpass our financial goals; to those of you who organized teams and joined the March bringing the Ottawa Gatineau myeloma community together. We had close to 200 patients, family and friends marching, raising awareness of the disease; and to all those who organized and helped make the day such a fun and successful event…including Mayor Watson who welcomed us all and cut the ribbon to start the March.
Congratulations and a big thank you to David Rideout, Myeloma March Chair, Ottawa-Gatineau Myeloma March.
