In The Community

This section is dedicated to recognize the contributions of members or the Ottawa JR Riders organization as a whole makes within the community. It will highlight contributions made for great causes such as the University of Ottawa Heart Institute or the Sunlife Ride to defeat diabetes.

University of Ottawa Heart Institute

The Ottawa JR Riders are proud to donate all the proceedings from the 50/50 draws at every home game to the Heart Institute. The 50/50 tickets are sold at every Ottawa JR Riders home game and if the total of the 50/50 does not exceed at least $1000 the Ottawa JR Riders will add the difference.

For the past two years the Ottawa JR Riders have donated a grand total of $2000 to the Ottawa Heart Institute. To help the Ottawa JR Riders continue the tradition of giving back to the Ottawa Heart Institute attend one of our home games and buy a 50/50 ticket.

Sun Life Ride To Defeat Diabetes

Coach Alex Reklitis will be partaking in the Sun Life Ride to Defeat Diabetes for JDRF. This ride is a high-energy stationary cycling event that will challenge Canadians to fundraise to assist with moving research forward. Join a team, spin solo, or perhaps provide a donation, all are appreciated and will go towards helping find a cure for type 1 diabetes. Register today!
