Welcome to
Hearts in Motion Virtual 5 km

Physical activity is good for your heart, mind, body and soul!

What is a virtual race? It’s a race that can be completed at any location, from exotic to hometown. You can walk, run or cycle the 5 km distance at the location of your choice. You can do a little at a time or complete the 5 km all at once.

By registering for this event you will also support the University of Ottawa Heart Institute - Canada’s largest and foremost heart health centre dedicated to understanding, treating, and preventing heart disease.

Kick start your summer 2016 fitness routine to keep your heart healthy!

Once you have completed the 5 km, send us a photo (lfirestone@ottawaheart.ca) or share it with the hashtag #heart5k or @heartfdn. You will receive a medal and recognition for your efforts. Medals will be mailed to you in July. There are also great prizes to be won for your fundraising efforts.

The Event is Simple:

Complete a 5 km walk, jog, run or cycle anytime between the June 1st to June 30th 2016.

Why fundraise for the University of Ottawa Heart Institute Foundation!

The funds raised will go towards our new hybrid operating room.

A hybrid operating room will be included in the Ottawa Heart Institute expansion which is underway. This new procedures room will enhance the efforts of the clinical team with a collaborative and patient centred environment, and exemplify that teamwork will continue as the bedrock of the UOHI into the future.

The hybrid operating room is an over-sized procedure room where interventional cardiologists, surgeons and imaging specialists can physically work together. It makes it possible to do less invasive procedures with real time advanced cardiac imaging in the same location to improve procedure outcomes.
