About Barrhaven Run for Roger Neilson House
In 2008 a small group of Barrhaven business owners banded together to start a registered charitable organization called BarrhavenRun.ca. The purpose of BarrhavenRun.ca was to organize an annual charity running event in the community of Barrhaven. Roger Neilson House, a pediatric palliative care facility located on the grounds of CHEO, was selected as the charity of choice. The first annual Barrhaven Run for Roger Neilson House was held in June 2008. 100% of the event proceeds go to Roger Neilson House. Events include a 10k Run(timed), 5k Run(timed), 2.5k Family Run/Walk and a Tot Trot with Spartacat. The event has grown each year with competitive runners from around the country taking part. Barrhaven Run raised over $300,000 for Roger Neilson House in 10 years.
