The Brice Tiamuh Memorial Charity Foundation (BTMCF) was established by his friends and family to commemorate the memory of Brice Tiamuh, an avid artist and soccer player who died from colorectal cancer in 2006 at the age of 27. Brice played for the Gloucester Hornets and the St. Matthew Catholic High School soccer teams. A skilled and committed young midfield player with a great attitude, Brice was popular with teammates and fans alike.
During his short lifetime, Brice made contributions not only to soccer, and other sports, but also to the arts and fashion communities in Ottawa through his clothing line, Rugged Gents Lifestyle Apparel.
Proceeds from fundraising events are directed towards two special efforts:
The Brice Tiamuh Bursary Award which goes to graduating high school students
To support the essential work being done
For more than 10 years the Brice Tiamuh Memorial Charity Foundation (BTMCF) has honoured the memory of a brother and a friend to many. As a registered non-profit organization, BTMCF seeks to raise funds for the Brice Tiamuh Memorial Bursary Award and to raise awareness of colorectal cancer – the disease that Brice died from in 2006.
The foundation has raised more than $10,000 in effort to encourage a healthier community for all, and to inspire youth to continue their education after high school.
The organization aims to host events every year. Events have ranged from a silent auction, cocktail dance party, to a beach soccer tournament. Event selections are driven by the passions that Brice had for the arts and sports.
Proceeds from the events go to a Brice Tiamuh Bursary, awarded to a high school student who has demonstrated a passion for the arts, as Brice did.
