We are pleased to, once again, present the annual Rideau View Inspirational Golf Classic in support of suicide prevention research at the Royal Ottawa Hospital. We invite you to join Rideau View members, business leaders, and loyal supporters as we tee it up at one of Ottawa’s premier private golf courses, Rideau View Golf Club in Manotick.
The 2023 Inspirational Golf Tournament is dedicated to the memory of Jamie Hubley. Jamie died by suicide at the age of 15 after years of bullying which led to depression and severe mental health challenges. Jamie was an award-winning figure skater and was beginning to be recognized as a singer who just wanted to help make others happy. By supporting the suicide prevention research at The Royal, you will help prevent other families – and maybe your own – from experiencing the tragic loss of a family member. We are pulling Allan and Wendy Hubley into the Rideau View family so please show them your support.

Rideau View Golf Club
Our goal is to raise $500,000 over five years
These funds will support The Royal’s Institute of Mental Health (IMHR) suicide prevention research. In January 2018, the IMHR recruited Dr. Zachary Kaminsky. Dr. Kaminsky is currently conducting cutting edge epigenetic research that seeks to measure, through a blood test, the degree to which an individual may be vulnerable to stressors that could increase their risk of suicidal thoughts or acts. Through the use of advanced technology, Dr. Kaminsky’s research aims at monitoring internal processes (biomarkers) and external behaviours to identify those most at risk. To date, the Rideau View Inspirational Golf Classic, raised over $447,000 making it the largest community golf tournament in the history of the Royal Ottawa Foundation.
