CHARITY PARTNER – TEAM BREATHE
GranFondoOttawa is once again proud to support Team Breathe –
The Ontario Lung Association as our charity of choice for 2017.
The Team Breathe volunteer crew will be decked out in their black t’s helping with registration, staging the start/finish area, on the road setting up our 5 ride route options, manning our 12+ Feed Stations along all 5 GranFondoOttawa ride routes as well as greeting on your return and managing the post ride FondoFesta and BBQ event.
Their help is invaluable and paramount to staging our event.
In appreciation of their support, we have a target to generate at least $10,000.00 each year in donated funds directly to them and offer various initiatives which we hope you in turn will help us in order to boost our fund raising efforts.
For 2017, we ask riders to work with us to either donate directly or help raise money in support of The Ontario Lung Association’s Respiratory Health Centre, based in Ottawa. Services include: asthma and COPD education; COPD Exercise Maintenance Program with six classes offered each week; Education courses for the community; we also hold Educator Courses for health care professionals including RespTrec© and SpiroTrec© They host meetings of the Transplant Advocacy Association, as many of our patients have had lung transplants, or are awaiting them. The Centre receives over 2,500 visits each year, helping people with lung disease breathe with ease.
Feel free to contact email@example.com for more details.

Our NEW program/initiative, The Exchange offers a twist as compared to Silent Auctions as we offer items for immediate access, ranging in value from $100.00 gift certificates at local shops & restaurants to wheels a complete bike as well as pro cycling jerseys and household items as well as trips and more.
We seek items from our sponsors and donate them to The Exchange.
We set a value which is typically 50% of the retail cost of the item without the added cost of the HST if the item were purchased. This represents excellent value and helps us support a worthy cause.
