Olympink Round

Inspiration and Participation




While the wonderful memory of the highly successful OlymPINK 2019 is still fresh, we wanted to take a moment to reach out and extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who helped us surpass our goals. Swimmers, breast cancer survivors, donors, officials, Olympians, Ottawa Hospital Foundation representatives, dignitaries and a small army of dedicated volunteers once again combined their efforts to hit the ball out of the park!

We are very close to completing our final calculations, but at this point we can safely  –and PROUDLY— say that we are on track to donate more than $42,000 towards the Ottawa Hospital’s purchase of a state of the art MRI machine which will dramatically improve diagnostic capabilities. We are absolutely blown away by the generosity of everyone who contributed to the success of OlymPINK once again this year, and we know we could not have done it without YOU!

We are now more confident than ever that our “little swim meet that could” is fast becoming “the little swim meet that CAN”, and we are already looking forward to soaring to new heights with OlymPINK 2020.

Once again, please accept our sincere thanks for joining us to support the Ottawa Hospital’s Rose Ages Breast Health Centre’s ongoing efforts to further enhance its stellar reputation for excellence in the diagnosis, treatment and care of breast cancer patients.

Andrea D’s Story

Gold standard care is what you get at The Ottawa Hospital.

I know. Because when I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2014, I experienced great care.

But it can always be better. There can always be more. And that’s why the Breast Health Centre needs us. Because the 35,000 women a year who access the services there need this. Because the 1,000 women a year who are diagnosed with breast cancer need this. We’re not going to cure it any time soon. So why not do what we can NOW. Today.

Research and technology. Here. In Ottawa. At the Breast Health Centre.


Your sister, your mother, your wife, your friend. You know someone who has needed the Breast Health Centre. You likely know someone who will need it.

Join me in giving back to the hospital that saved my life. I swim for fitness. I swim for rehab and mobility. Now I’m swimming for a cause. I’m joined by 6 former Olympian swimmers – going for gold was a lifetime mantra for them. Striving to be the best is what OlymPINK is all about:

OlymPINK.org More than just a swim meet.

YOU can help us make a difference. Help us help The Ottawa Hospital Breast Health Centre by swimming or supporting our swim meet fundraiser. We’re going to make a big splash at Brewer Pool in Ottawa on April 7th, 2018. All proceeds of the event will help to ensure that breast cancer patients in our region continue to receive world class care, right here in Ottawa.
