GranFondoOttawa is once again proud to support The Ontario Lung Association as our charity of choice for 2014.
Their I Love Lungs volunteer crew will be decked out in their red t's helping with registration, at the start/finish, on the road setting manning our 10+ Feed Stations along all 4 ride routes as well as greeting on your return.
Their help is invaluable and we hope you will help us in support of them in our fund raising efforts.

For 2014 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 for more details
