Fundraising Goal $10,000.00

Our Message

For some, running in Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend is about achieving a personal best. But for TK4ALS, it’s a race to save lives!

TK4ALS was insipred by Karen Lawrence, a Clinical Manager of Oncology at The Ottawa Hospital. Karen carries the devastating gene of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and has seen its impact first hand by losing 14 family members to ALS, including Karen's father. For Karen, it’s not so much about her future, but that of her sons.

“The race is on to raise money to fund research to find a cure for this disease, or ways to prevent its onset before my three beautiful boys are faced with the same agonizing decision that I had to make about whether or not I wanted to know if I would test positive.”

Karen and TK4ALS will be lacing up for Run for a Reason at Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend to raise some of those crucial dollars for The Ottawa Hospital to find that cure in time to help her family and others before they are stricken with ALS.

While the disease is serious, Karen and TK4ALS will be looking to have fun together as they train in the months ahead whether they’re walking or running. Support this team and their efforts by joining the team or donating to their cause!
