An Unforgettable Weekend

You have two options when it comes to registering for the 2013 Ottawa Marathon Weekend with Connected in Motion:

(2) As a participant + fundraiser with Connected in Motion (Fundraising incentives are included below – All donations are 100% tax deductible!)

This is a great weekend for anyone looking to get connected and inspired by spending a weekend around an amazing group of type 1s. All running levels welcome as there are many ways to be a part of the team. Registration for participants and participant+fundraisers is open to both Type 1s and 5.5ers (What’s a 5.5er, you ask? 5.5ers are an important part of the CIM community – the friends, families, and supporters of folks living with Type 1 who makes are lives infinitely easier!). Bring out your families and friends to join us during the weekend’s events by walking, running, or cheering!
