Staff, volunteers, families, and community members have been raising money through Ottawa Race Weekend since 2016 with over $56,000 raised in support of Seniors and Veterans who call the Perley Rideau home.
This year, we are inviting the community to join our team and get involved. We have some great prizes and incentives for members! If running really isn’t your thing you can always donate in support of the team.

With your support, the Perley Rideau can increase the availability of appropriate and affordable living units for approximately 200 seniors and establish Canada’s first Centre of Excellence in Frailty-Informed Care under the direction and guidance of a Research Chair.
We need your support and your generous help to see the Caring for the Future campaign succeed.
You can imagine that in my 97 years, I’ve lived through my share of ups and downs. As a Veteran of the Korean War, I’m blessed to have lived such a full and meaningful life. And I’m so grateful to you for helping to give me such a wonderful home here at the Perley and Rideau Veterans’ Health Centre.
