Run for Women

The biggest women’s mental health celebration in Canada! 

The Shoppers Drug Mart® Run for Women is the largest event series in Canada dedicated to women’s mental health. 

To date, the Ottawa Run for Women has raised over $2.6M for women's mental health programs at The Royal. Every dollar raised supports mothers, daughters, and friends through the funding of programs that allow women to take that next step to recovery.

Sign up and participate in-person or virtually, in the 5K or 10K walk/run and the 1K Little Steps for kids!

Join us on June 2, 2024 at LeBreton Flats as we walk, run or roll in support of gender-specific mental health care and research at The Royal!
