Fun Times at the Ottawa Tamarack Weekend!
Although rainy weather tried hard to thwart our efforts, Team SCIO aka “Cole’s Crew” took another kick at the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend. With runners and rollers in the 10 km and ½ marathon events and the generous support of our team sponsors, we raised $9170.
Hats off to our three top fundraisers: Cheryl Grusnick, Marla Ferguson and Sandy Wood. Not only were these ladies fantastic fundraisers but they were also amazing athletes with Cheryl and Marla running the 10 km race (in the pouring rain!) and Sandy tackling a hot, humid and windy ½ marathon. Our team captain, Cole Ferguson rocked the 10 km course again this year, rolling it out in 57:43.
We would like to thank our generous sponsors who supported the event as well: Caltrio Landscape Maintenance, Eureka Solutions, Silver Cross Automotive, Conval-Aid, OMS/Medical Pharmacies Group, and Canada Care Medical. A huge thank you also to Randy and Maura Romain for their behind the scenes fundraising efforts.
And finally, the SCIO team would love to give a big shout out to our cheering squad who came out to show their support – in particular, Viola Lalonde and Michael McAuley.
We are looking forward to outsmarting the weather man next year and doing this up even bigger and better! We hope you will consider joining us for the fun.
