Run For Amanda.
sMiles for Amanda
Please join us in running 5km in the memory of Amanda Kelsall, MD 2016 whom tragically passed in an accident January 2014. In honour of her bright spirit and love of running, her classmates, with the support of the faculty, organized the inaugural "sMILES for Amanda" in conjunction with Run Ottawa. The Aesculapian Society, has decided to commemorate her spirit with the organization of this run for years to come. 2016 was a very important year because Amanda's class graduated and Amanda was bestowed an honorary medical degree posthumously.
The sMILES for Amanda yearly event will surely be a celebration of life, family and friendship. The race ceremonies will commence with opening words from the Kelsalls. Following the 5km race through the Experimental Farm, all are invited to share their memories of Amanda through a number of activities to bring this wonderful community together: yoga, musical performances, and food. All are welcome for all or any part of these events.
