Alterna Receives President's Award

Our long- time partners at the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation recently presented Alterna with an award for our many years of support for Do It For Dad (now the Ultimate Run for Men's Cancer) during their annual Cancer Foundation Telethon.  Ottawa area residents and Alterna employees Allan Jensen, Norma Kleiman, and Patricia Spencer accepted the award on behalf of Alterna.

We are very proud to be part of this broadcast and thankful to the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation for being such a great community partner over the past 13 years.  We look forward to making this year’s event the most successful one yet.

Each year on Father’s Day, the event raises awareness and funds in the fight against men’s cancers below the belt. Funds raised go directly to the Cancer Foundation in support of cancer research, patient care, education, and capital needs in the Ottawa area. Over the past 13 years, Alterna has helped the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation raise more than 2 million dollars for men’s cancer research, awareness and patient care in our community.

Book your calendars!  The Alterna Ultimate Run for Men’s Cancer will be held on June 17, 2012 in Ottawa.
