Last year, the uOttawa Gee-Gees were overwhelmed and inspired and overwhelmed with the generosity of our alumni, families, friends, and donors. More than $600,000 was raised from 786 donors and invested directly in support of our 800 + Gee-Gees student-athletes.
Over the last three years, your support on Giving Tuesday has had a record breaking and historical impact on our Gee-Gees. Last season we had, 220 + Gee-Gees achieve Academic All Canadian status and their success continued in athletics as they amassed a combine 40 U SPORTS, RSEQ and OUA medals.
Donors' support helped upgrade locker rooms, provided meals during training camps, provided academic support and tutoring and provided enhanced travel opportunities.
