For the 7th year running USC Canada’s Run for Biodiversity team will be going the distance as part of the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend (marathon, half marathon, 10km, 5km and 2km), May 23-24.

Our amazing team of R4B Runners and Walkers will be fundraising to support USC Canada’s work with seed-saving farmers in Ethiopia. So why not join us?

All R4B-Ottawa runners and walkers who commit to raising at least $100 will receive a specially-designed Run for Biodiversity t-shirt, as well as ongoing support to help them achieve their fundraising goal.

As a special thank you, USC Canada will refund the registration fees for all R4B-Ottawa fundraisers who raise $250 or more!

Don’t be disappointed – as races are selling out fast – so REGISTER TODAY.

Contact me at for details. Feel free to help spread the word too.

A note from Green Living Ottawa: For more information on USC Canada’s great work, check out their website.

Biodiversity is all about food and farmers. It is Earth’s life-support system and nature’s brilliant insurance policy against disaster. If something fails, having a diversity of options means there is always a backup plan. When you run or walk, you help USC Canada support the farmers who plant the seeds of our very survival.”
