“The Ottawa Maverick’s Donuts locations could not be prouder to support Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend and the Ottawa Kids Marathon. We are so fortunate to be a part of the Ottawa community. The best part of our day is seeing smiles on the faces of the children that come into our shops. We are so pleased to be able to sponsor this event, be a part of the fun and see a lot of those smiles!” – Jon Martin, Vice President Franchise Development & Managing Partner, Maverick’s Donut Company

As Ottawa Kids Marathon presenting sponsor, roughly 5,000 participants will receive a Maverick’s Donut once they cross the finish line.

“We’re so excited to have the support of such an amazing community-based business for the Ottawa Kids Marathon,” said Marketing Director, Lisa Georges. “Our partnership with Maverick’s Donuts is a great fit as we both provide the community with memorable experiences. We know our participants will appreciate their involvement as well!”
