Happy 2018 to all! The Gracefest Fun Run/Walk Committee has finally woken up from winter hibernation to begin the planning process for our 2018 event to be held on Saturday 08 Sept 2018. We are looking forward to making our event even more successful than 2017 when we had 75 participants and were able to donate $7,500 to Habitat for Humanity - Greater Ottawa. With the fantastic support that we have had from our sponsors in the Orleans area we are seeking to maintain the target of raising over $100 for each participant to donate to Habitat after the event is over. We will be sending out an email soon inviting all past participants to mark the date of our September event in their calendars. We look forward to seeing you back again in September!

The Gracefest 2017 5K Fun Run/Walk is hosted by Grace Presbyterian Church to reach out to the Orleans community and to raise funds for Habitat for Humanity - Greater Ottawa who are building homes for residents here in Orleans.  Please come join us for a fun and friendly event while contributing to a worthy cause in our community.

After the fun run/walk event join us at Grace Presbyterian Church for our annual Gracefest celebration - a FREE family fun day featuring a BBQ, Live Music and Dancing, Kid’s Zone, Magician, Coffee Pub, Art Exhibit, Bouncy Castle!  Please click here for the Gracefest schedule of events.
