eyeDOCS is proud to announce the beginning of our partnership with the Canadian Cancer Society as local sponsors for the Ottawa-Gatineau Run for the Cure 2017.
25 years ago a small group of volunteers led the first Run for the Cure… today the run is the largest single day, volunteer-led event in support of breast cancer research. With over 100,000 participants it raises $17 million annually in communities all across Canada.
As local sponsors eyeDOCS has made a generous personal donation and has committed to fundraising throughout the year leading up to the event.
In addition to our local sponsorship, eyeDOCS has put together a corporate team which will be participating in the Ottawa-Gatineau run on October 1st. We welcome anyone who wishes to run with us to register with the eyeDOCS team! Currently our team has 19 members comprising of staff members, and their family and friends.
To boost our corporate donations, eyeDOCS has partnered with George et Phina to hold a fundraising event. On Saturday, September 23rd, eyeDOCS Westboro will host ‘Raise Your Glasses’ a fundraising event for cancer research.
On this day our clinic will be filled with all of George et Phina’s exclusive glasses and sunglasses lines and eyeDOCS will be donating 10% of the proceeds from the day to the Run for the Cure. Many of the styles and brands showcased have never before been seen in Ottawa. It’s a great opportunity to update your glasses while benefitting a great cause!
We have opened additional exam slots for this date so if you require an appointment please contact us.
