July Runner of the Month
It’s been fifty-six days since we wrapped up the 2017 Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend, but the spirit of the race lives on as runners keep training for next year, reflecting on their successes and giving back to the community. Over the next year we will be sharing their stories as part of The Pulse’s monthly Featured Runner series.
This month’s runner is Susan, who completed the 2017 Scotiabank Half Marathon, and raised $2,000 for the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation.
As the Foundation wrote on its Facebook page: “It was important to Susan to personally connect with all of her friends and family to ask for a donation, so she made an effort to meet face-to-face with each and every person.”
A big thank you and congratulations to Susan for completing the half marathon, and for doing such amazing work for an important local charity. This year Susan and Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend participants raised over $826,000 through the Scotiabank Charity Challenge!
