Fundraising events

The uOBMRI and its partners host a variety of fundraising events throughout the year. A number of our important research discoveries would not be possible without the support of the community through these events.

Featured Event: 

 

The University of Ottawa Brain and Mind Research Institute (uOBMRI) invites you to the second annual March for Concussion event, an educational fundraiser focused on raising awareness and funds to improve the lives and care of concussion patients.

Major challenges for patients include timely access to care, predicting whether injury will lead to substantial deficits, and under-standing of when activity can be resumed. In order to combat these challenges face-on, the uOBMRI facilitates and funds an innovative network of researchers and projects and your support is needed to help us make a change.

Join us March 30, 2019 to show your support for our second annual March for Concussion! Click here to register.

Lap the Gats
The Parkinson’s Research Consortium team at the 2014 Lap the Gats event.

Lap the Gats for Parkinson's is a charitable cycling event that takes place in Gatineau Park to raise funds for Parkinson's Disease research. Please join us to help find a cure to the second most common neurodegenerative disorder.

Presently, Parkinson's has no cure or proven treatment available to slow its relentless progression, despite the fact that it was discovered nearly 200 years ago. Parkinson's affects over 100,000 people in Canada and that number is expected to double in the coming years.

On June 24, 2018, the fifth annual Lap the Gats event will take place! Together we can Lap the Gats to find a cure!
