Purpose Project

sMiles for Amanda

 Each year the residents of Horseshoe Valley and neighbouring communities have an opportunity to give hope to many through a run that was initiated in memory of Amanda Kelsall, who was suddenly taken to her heavenly home in January of 2014.  This is a fun way for the community to unite and spread faith, hope and love.

In 2014, Amanda was in her second year of pursuing an education in Medicine at the University of Ottawa. She received her Medical Degree posthumously in 2016.  After her homegoing, the Faculty of Medicine at uOttawa initiated the annual "sMiles for Amanda" run in 2014 as an opportunity to remember Amanda and to raise funds for a specific cause.  In solidarity, runs have taken place internationally since then by those whose lives were touched by Amanda. WE Unite began the local annual run in 2016.  The event has raised just under $45,000 since its inception for various causes.
