Valérie’s Flutter Foundation finds it very important and necessary to work in the community. We all benefit when lots of people are engaged and become aware of significant causes. When people rally together and work to make a difference, anything is possible.
Valérie has long been involved with the Terry Fox Run in Orléans, and has taken the successes of the past years as an inspiration for the foundation. Whether it be creating a new event or participating in one, Valérie’s Flutter Foundation wishes to be active in its community and to help get others involved in the cause.

Rattle Me Bones Run 2020
Sunday October 25, 2020
Rattle Me Bones will be taking place on October 25th. This novel Halloween-themed run has long been a popular end-of-year run in Ottawa. The best part - it's all for a great cause.
There are four great options:
1.5km JiggleBone Run (Family Run): 10:30am start
5km FunnyBone Run: 9:30am start
10km WishBone Run: 8:30am start
NEW 2.5km Zombie Experience: Are you up for the challenge? In this run, runners will attempt to make it to the finish line while avoiding the zombies. Each runner will be equipped with two "flag-football" flags, which the zombies will try to steal from you throughout the run. You are encouraged to wear your Halloween costume! Thank you to the sKreamers volunteers for being the scariest zombies in town. 11:30am start.
The four runs start and finish at Tunney's Pasture. Runners will run along the scenic Parkway. All funds raised will support world class research at The Ottawa Hospital Research Institute into new treatments for Bone Cancers and Cancers that affect mobility, and new treatments to make these bones healthy again.
ABOUT RATTLE ME BONES
Founded over 20 years ago, Rattle Me Bones has raised well over $1M dollars for musculoskeletal and bone cancer research.

All funds raised support much needed research at the Ottawa Hospital.
