Rattle Me Bones, happening October 29, 2017, is an exciting Halloween run with distances to appeal to each and every runner. With four great options – the 1km-–JiggleBone Run (Family Run), 5km-FunnyBone Run, the classic 10km-WishBone Run, and the all-new 1/2 Marathon, runners have a chance to participate in the run that best appeals to them. Founded over 20 years ago, Rattle Me Bones has raised well over $1M dollars for musculoskeletal and bone cancer research.
The four runs start and finish at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum. All funds raised will support world class research at The Ottawa Hospital and Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, into new treatments for Bone Cancers and Cancers that affect mobility, and new treatments to make these bones healthy again.
Looking for something a bit more adventurous? Well hold on to your head, THE ZOMBIES ARE BACK!! Yes, it's true, this year in addition to the four great runs listed above, we are bringing back the ZOMBIE RUN. Being held on October 7th, 2017 at the Proulx Berry Farm / SKREAMERS HOME, participants will have the chance to run through fields and haunted trails escaping the grasp of ZOMBIES who will be eagerly awaiting you. Challenge yourself to keep at least one of your flags to be considered a true SURVIVOR.
Choose the run that best suits you, raise funds through on-line pledges and help us raise much needed funds for research in bone cancer and cancers that affect the bone. Rattle Me Bones is proudly presented to you by The University of Ottawa - Faculty of Medicine, The Division of Orthopaedic Surgery at The Ottawa Hospital, CHEO, and Valerie's Flutter Foundation.
