You may be familiar with the annual Shoppers Drug Mart Run for Women, in its 7th year here in Ottawa. As with most things this year, because of the Covid-19 virus, the usual large group run will be run/walked individually or with friends on their own time, although September 17 - 27 are the actual dates of the run. This year Shoppers Drug Mart is ensuring that 100% of donations (not the 25% of previous years) will go to the targeted charity which in Ottawa is the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre.
I'm happy to participate in the Ottawa run, particularly because funds will be raised for women’s mental health programs at the Royal. As the COVID-19 pandemic is significantly impacting the mental health of many of us, the Royal needs our help to continue to provide its vital support and care.
It is so impressive that 100% of the funds donated will go directly to the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. If you agree with me that this cause is very worthwhile, please consider donating to help me reach my fundraising goal. Tax receipts are provided by e-mail.
