Accora Village

The Bed Race has been part of Winterlude since 1980, and has been organized by the Kiwanis Club of Ottawa since 2003. During that time it has raised over $500,000 for Kiwanis Community Service projects.

Since 2012, the Accora Village Bed Race for Kiwanis has had Accora Village as our title sponsor, and a very active participant with 4 teams running their own special heat.




The Watch-it Shred-it project began in 2009 as fund raising project for the Xmas basket project of the Direct Assistance Committee. The program has grown significantly, and last year over 500 baskets were delivered to 175 families.

The program would not be possible without the support of Shred-it, who are also a corporate member of the Club. They enthusiastically provide the trucks and staff to allow the annual fund raiser to take place.

Rogers Cable 22

The Kiwanis TV Bingo project launched in 2010 and quickly became the largest fund raiser for the Club with over $200,000 raised annually.

The TV Bingo project relies on Rogers TV Channel 22 for the broadcast facilities and the professional staff who make the program possible.
