The Bromont Ultra and the fundraising are inseparable. The Bromont Ultra traces its origins to the first ultra-marathons Gilles Poulin ran where he took advantage of these demanding events to do fundraising for various causes. Thus, in 2009, the Ultragiving mouvement was boen and, in 2011, the Fondation Ultragiving that became his philanthropic vehicle. 5 years - 4 ultras of 100 miles, 3 of 50 miles et almost 300,000 dollars in donations later, it was finally the Bromont Ultra that was born. The Fondation Ultragiving now becomes the philanthropic vehicle of an entire community... runners, those who want to excel, volunteers and all partners of the Bromont Ultra. In combining excelling physicaly and in generosity, TOGHETER, WE WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD.
2014 BROMONT ULTRA (RESULTS)
With the first Bromont Ultra in 2014, we have raised over $85,000 and soon, we will talk of thousands of dollars per year (one day, perhaps we will speak of millions? -- let me dream!) and all of this for runnign trails... You will see in the comingmonths videos showing where the funds have been used. You will see that the Ultragiving Foundation works very closely with all agencies receiving funding. Every body involved associates a very specific project to the donations they receive and so all donorscan know exactly what is going on with their donations. Total transparency.
Fundraising is mandatory BUT YOU CAN PAY YOURSELF. We understand very well that some are not comfortable to ask. Even if you pay the fundraiser out of your own Pocket, the total price of the Bromont Ultra remains among the most affordable.
Receipt for all donations of $25 or more.
