2017 Ottawa-Gatineau Myeloma Walk - Steps to a Cure!
The annual Ottawa- Gatineau Myeloma Walk took place on a very hot Sunday September 24th
at the Ron Kolbus Lakeside Centre at Britannia Beach.
A big THANK YOU to the organizers, participants, sponsors and everyone who helped
make this walk happen. Each year the Walk brings the Myeloma community together to create awareness of the disease and raise money to support research and improve patient care.
Our fundraising goal this year was a very ambitious $75,000. We nearly made it! We
raised $69,424.60 or 92% of our goal.
Half the funds will support the work of Myeloma Canada’s National Research Network and half will go to support myeloma research initiatives at The Ottawa Hospital. All in the interest of improving patient care and ultimately finding a cure!
