Help build Hope and Homes in London! That Dam Hill is a spectator-friendly race that attracts elite athletes and recreational runners alike. You can participate in the race as an individual or with a team. A portion of your registration fee and all the funds you raise will build new affordable housing in London.

That Dam Hill offers three events in support of Indwell: a 5K walk/run, a marathon relay, and a 24 hour team relay. All funds raised will support construction of a new affordable housing building at 744 Dundas Street in London. The community at 744 Dundas Street will offer 72 one and two bedroom apartments at deeply affordable rents ($550/month for 1BR and $730/month for 2BR) for Londoners seeking health, wellness, and belonging.

More about Indwell

For 45 years, Indwell has provided hope and homes to some of the most marginalized members of our society: those who live with mental illness, physical disabilities, and addictions. Most of our tenants live on less than $14,000 a year, most have experienced homelessness, and many have spent time in a psychiatric hospital due to mental illness.

Our robust team of professionals provides supports for our tenants and helps create a community that allows for natural supports to evolve. Our team in London includes staff roles of nurses, addictions support worker, food security worker, and apartment support workers.

The building at 744 Dundas Street is Indwell’s second community in London. Woodfield Gate, at 356 Dundas, offers 67 one-bedroom apartments. Our building at 744 Dundas will be home to a regional office to support additional growth in London and southwest Ontario. The building will also have two commercial units and a restaurant, contributing to the vibrant commercial corridor in Old East.

Join the race!

  1. Register for the race through That Dam Hill’s website. Each team member can register separately – you just need register under the same team name.
  2. Set up your fundraising page for yourself and/or your entire team at CanadaHelp’s secure site. Here you can set goals, track your progress, and get links to invite your networks to support your race. You can also donate directly to Indwell.
  3. Indwell is a charitable organization, so your fundraising efforts may qualify for your company’s charitable giving matching program.

Send a note of encouragement

Now more than ever, it is important that our tenants feel connected with others, even if they cannot be physically connected. Send a note of encouragement to be shared with our tenants who are feeling isolated at this time.
