This is a great weekend for anyone looking to get connected and inspired by spending a weekend around an amazing group of Type 1s. All running levels welcome, as there are many ways to be a part of the team... or just come out to cheer!
You have two options when it comes to registering for the 2014 Ottawa Marathon Weekend with Connected in Motion:

(2) As a participant + fundraiser with Connected in Motion (Fundraising incentives are included below - All donations are 100% tax deductible!)
Registration is open to both Type 1s and 5.5ers (What's a 5.5er, you ask? 5.5ers are an important part of the CIM community - the friends, families, and supporters of folks living with Type 1 who makes are lives infinitely easier!)
