There are 206 bones in your body and every bone can develop primary bone cancer. Arms and legs are most commonly affected. Researchers at The Ottawa Hospital are discovering new ways to treat bone cancer, developing approaches to prevent cancer from spreading to the bone, and optimizing bone cancer surgery techniques. Since 1993, Rattle Me Bones has raised more than $1.1 million in support of The Ottawa Hospital. Your decision to apply to volunteer means a great deal to many people in our community.

Once you have registered to volunteer, our volunteer coordinator will be in touch with you to tell you about the exciting opportunities we have available for you and to update you on training and orientation. Rattle Me Bones volunteers are key to the success of the event and we will ensure you have all the tools and information you need to help make Rattle Me Bones a success.

Thank you for your support and for doing your part. If you have questions or need assistance, please contact us by sending an email to runrattlemebones@gmail.com.
