Scotiabank Charity Challenge
The Scotiabank Charity Challenge is our primary community event for creating awareness as well as fundraising. We have now participated in 4 events spanning 2 years. This event has allowed us to gain exposure to hundreds of thousands of people, gain media attention, and raise funds.
Thus far we have attended events in 3 cities (Ottawa, Calgary, Halifax) and as we continue to grow we plan to complete the Charity Challenge series in future years by participating in all 6 events coast to coast.
In 2016 alone, you and other runners helped raise over $7.5 million dollars for over 550 charities across Canada. In fact, since the Scotiabank Charity Challenge began in 2003 you’ve helped raise over $50 million - which went directly to charities across Canada to create a stronger future for young people and build vibrant communities. http://www.scotiabank.com
Please come out to help us raise awareness and at the same time raise some funds for Aniridia! We will update this page as more information becomes available!
