Nordion presents Rattle Me Bones fundraiser in support of bone cancer research at The Ottawa Hospital

After a year of hiatus, Organizers at The Ottawa Hospital Foundation are thrilled to have revived the infamous Rattle Me Bones fundraising event – but not without the help of Nordion!

The long-time corporate supporter has come on board as title sponsor and hopes to have many Nordion employees participate in the event on October 25 and support bone cancer research at The Ottawa Hospital.

“At Nordion, a global scientific company, the value of research is ingrained in our culture along with the importance of building healthy communities and, of course, family,” says Scott McIntosh, Chief Operating Officer at Nordion.   “Rattle me Bones has been part of the running community since 1993, it raises money for bone cancer research at The Ottawa Hospital and it’s a family-friendly activity to get us moving. It’s a perfect fit for us!”

What also appealed to Nordion is the variety of options for every age group, ability and fundraising level. With no minimum fundraising amount required, it’s really open to everyone and its tons of fun! Ghouls and goblins of all ages are encouraged to dress up, and there’s even a special Kids Zone planned for this year’s edition.

To make the event even more attractive, Nordion is covering the registration cost for its employees and their families.

“There’s really no reason not to take part,” says Shelley MacLean, Director, Communications and Government Relations at Nordion. “It’s a great way to give back to The Ottawa Hospital, all while having fun with our colleagues, friends and family.”
