Once again the citizens and businesses of this great city led with their hearts, and followed with their wallets! On August 12th, the Kiwanis Club of Ottawa was able to raise $5,000 in the 2nd annual "Mile of Toonies" event for the fight against Iodine Deficiency Disorders. This means that 100,000 children will receive the iodine that they need to fight this terrible disease.
