Event hosts from Sun Life Financial, Erin Meisner & Joanne Kudakiewicz, have a vision to help local families who are struggling financially, emotionally & physically with the effects of illness; to put money in the hands of those that can truly improve their well-being and ability to recover. This year Recovery Matters efforts are focused on those experiencing a cancer diagnosis and vulnerable people in the community. We will achieve this goal through partnership with the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation, who can put the money raised directly into the hands of families in Ottawa who need it most through their program and services. Through the Recovery Matters Heroes Challenge, an obstacle style competitive course, our corporate sponsors and donors will have their teams raise awareness and resources for those who are already negatively affected by their diagnosis.
