UR4DAD 2014 - GET CHECKED: STAY IN IT FOR THE LONG RUN!
The warm weather is here – and that means it’s time to get your sneakers out of hiding and hit the road for the 2014 ULTIMATE RUN for Men’s Cancers presented by Raymond James.
This Father’s Day join the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation for the 16th annual event and help raise important funding to improve local cancer care and treatment.
“The ULTIMATE RUN has a long history in this community,” explains Max Keeping, Founding Honorary Chair of the ULTIMATE RUN. “Over the years we have raised more than $3.4 million and 100% of those funds have stayed in our community to help purchase life-saving equipment and fund cancer research and awareness programs.”
As you may already know, Max has publicly shared news that he is currently battling his third bout with cancer – an untreatable form of colon cancer. He is sharing his story in an effort to highlight the importance of screening and early detection.
“I wish I had listened to my body – to what it was telling me,” he explains. “I know that if I had gone to see the doctor when my symptoms first surfaced, things might be different today.”
