OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - March 19, 2014) - The Ottawa Senators Foundation (@sensfoundation) announced today the merger between the Walk, Roll & Run for Roger's House and the annual Barrhaven Run for Roger's House.
Both events held each June raise significant funds for the pediatric palliative and respite care facility. Walk, Roll and Run's strong family and fundraising culture combined with Barrhaven Run's growing participant base will create an improved experience for all participants while aiming to increase the awareness and funds raised for Roger's House.
- Improved date, course and race routes - The new location will provide a better running course, which will include, the new "Donnelly Ford 10 km" (timed), a 5 km (timed) and a 2.5 km family route. The new date of the event is changed to work around Father's Day.
- More family fun - The Barrhaven Run will for the first time feature Senators inflatables, Spartacat and all the best parts of the Walk, Roll & Run "Family Fun Zone" will be at the event.
- Prizes - There is prize money associated with the first- through fifth-place finishers of the 10 km timed race as well as prizing for the event's top fundraisers.
- Bigger contribution - By combining the two events, the Ottawa Senators Foundation will be able to eliminate a significant portion of the operating expenses, which will allow for more funds to go to Roger's House.
The Barrhaven Run for Roger's House will be held on Saturday, June 7, at Mother Theresa High School.
This event would not be possible without the support of the returning Barrhaven Run Platinum Sponsors: Barrhaven Source for Sports, Creppin Realty Group, Barrhaven Pharmasave and BrokerLink (formerly Baizana Insurance Brokers).
