The BIGF will again be part of the Giordana Gran Fondo National Championship Series of events across North America and points will be awarded that will count towards the overall championship.

The inaugural Gran Fondo raised over $30,000 which went towards palliative care programs at Bluewater Health and St. Joseph’s Hospice, including professional development training for medical staff.

 “That encouraged us that we could do it again because we had such strong support,” said Jonathan Palumbo, Gran Fondo vice-chair and Bluewater Health Foundation chairperson.
