EPIC WALK for Cancer Care
September 26, 2015
8 am to 4 pm
I am sure that, like me, cancer has touched your own life in some way, be it a friend, family member, or neighbour. That is why this year I am co-chairing the EPIC WALK – for our community members like Ken Ross.
As you know Barrhaven lost our dear friend Ken in March. I have spoken with Ken’s wife Kelly and friends, and we would very much like to have “team Ken Ross” representing Barrhaven as a leader in the EPIC WALK. Many of you have been asking how you can honour Ken’s name. Kelly and I think this would be a great way to remember him and so I am inviting you to stand up for Ken and walk in the 3rd annual EPIC WALK.
We all know how much Ken did for this community, and we know how hard the Queensway Carleton Hospital and Ottawa Regional Cancer Centre tried to help Ken with his battle, so let’s raise money for cancer treatment and prevention, let’s do it for Ken Ross, and let’s do it for our community.
Please send me your contact information soon if you’re ready to lace up your favourite walking shoes and walk in Ken’s memory. Each participant raises a minimum of $1,000 and commits to walking an EPIC distance across Ottawa, whatever that distance may be for you.
Funds raised from the EPIC WALK will be invested in local cancer care including equipment and programming at the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation and the Queensway Carleton Hospital. This means that every dollar raised will help local families who are facing a cancer diagnosis. The Queensway Carleton Hospital, our community hospital, will invest in state-of-the-art technology and equipment that will help prevent and detect cancer.
