Riders can use the link (below) and blast email requests to family, friends and colleagues to support efforts by directing donors to a customized fund raising page whereby they log on, search for a rider/name and make a pledge on-line. Your donors can choose to donate directly to The Lung Association using the online pledge program. Riders or donors can also gather pledge checks/cash & bring them to the OLA tables when they visit the GranFondoOttawa expo.
Success in 2013 and 2014
The GranFondoOttawa organizer and riders supported the Ontario Lung Association through the Pledge Program, and the Charity Auction. Over $10,000 was donated, with all funds directly supported lung research, and the Lung Association’s Respiratory Helath Centre in Ottawa. The goal for 2015 is to push the $15,000 mark.
As a charity partner we are committed to fulfilling volunteer needs for GranFondo Ottawa
