EPIC WALK for Cancer Care

September 16, 2017

The EPIC Walk in support of the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation and the Queensway Carleton Hospital is Ottawa’s biggest one day walk, and it’s your chance to be part of a community-based movement to inspire change.

On September 16th, 2017 we will walk 28 kms across our city in honour of the more than 7,000 local families who will be facing cancer this year. We know that walking 28 kms will be grueling at times, but with every step we are helping to provide better cancer care and treatment options for our loved ones.

We will inspire change and it all starts with you!


  1. Register! RECRUIT your family, friends and colleagues to be part of your EPIC WALK team. Design your own fundraising plan, or reach out to the Cancer Foundation for tips on how to get your online fundraising drive started. Please note there is a minimum fundraising goal of $1000 per participant or team average of at least $1000 per team member!

  2. Start training for your WALK by planning out weekly strolls in your neighbourhood. This will help you build up your endurance for the big day, and give you interesting info and photos to share on social media. Don’t forget to invite your family and friends to join you!

  3. When you cross the finish line you will be celebrating with family and friends all that you have accomplished in helping families in our community. The work you have done will INSPIRE others to get involved!
