Bob Hardy’s 2018 Ottawa Marathon run has a special purpose. This will be Hardy’s third Ottawa Marathon racing his Hugo race walker. His racing goal is a five-hour, 15-minute marathon time. But his fundraising goal is to donate at least $2,000 to the bone marrow transplant unit of the General Campus of the Ottawa General Hospital. In 1997, while battling leukaemia, a bone marrow transplant saved his life. Now, he wishes to help others. You can support Hardy to help him reach his goal. Email him at: [email protected]
