Friends of GranFondoOttawa Cycling Team
For those who have battled and are battling Cancer, we are riding in appreciation of your inspiration and perserverance and to give thanks for the excellent care provided to so many on a daily basis at TOH Cancer Center.
The Ride presents an opportunity to battle along - as we manage through diet changes, life changes, Chemo/Rad treatments, recovery and pushing to stay fit ahead of surgery.
Shortly after being diagnosed with Cancer, the choice to support The Ride and Cancer Research at The Ottawa Hospital was an easy decision.
Reaching out to a few family members and friends, both who ride and not - along side a few loyal GranFondoOttawa riders: the foundation of a Team was laid to Do The Ride on September 8th and make an added difference.
Initially we hoped to interest 5-10 riders, maybe 15, however its been overwhelming to have been offered so much support as we have assembled more than 40 riders, unbelievable and truly inspirational.
We created the Friends of GranFondoOttawa Cycling Club with a goal to raise $25,000.00, now extended to $70,000.00.
In appreciation of their support, all our F of GFO CC riders will receive a hand made custom Italian made Biemme Madison 3 jersey, Pro Race bibs and Endura Performance socks to reward the Team's efforts and help both celebrate and commemorate the day.
We also have generous support from longtime friends and GranFondoOttawa sponsors including Shimano, DeRosa, Clif Bar, Briko, Veloflex, Stella Azzura, Biemme, Diadora, DZ Nuts, Clocktower, Bectka, Gezeling, Play Food & Wine, Giovannis, Brookstreet Hotel and Todd Morin/IG Wealth Management.
We've created an Auction Page with the feature item as a 2019 DeRosa Idol Disc bike, built with Shimano Ultegra R8050 Di2 disc with RS770 C30 carbon wheels, Pro Cockpit, Veloflex Tires - all built to your specs.
