The Scotiabank Charity Challenge
The Scotiabank Charity Challenge allows for thousands of participants to make their 5k, half marathon or full marathon race more meaningful by raising funds for the charity of their choice. To aid with fundraising efforts, all official charity participants receive access to a free, user-friendly online fundraising system with 100% of all funds raised going directly to each charity. Participants are able to support a broad range of charities including health focused, environmental, social and community services.
In 2017, the Scotiabank Charity Challenge at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon hosted close to 200 charities who raised over $3.5 million! Since its inception in 2003, the Scotiabank Charity Challenge at the STWM has raised over $35 million for local, national and international charities.
As an added benefit of being employed by the title sponsor, Scotiabank will cover the registration fee for employees who register for the event and fundraise a minimum of $200 for one of the Scotiabank Charity Challenge Official Charities.
