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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can my family and friends register as well?

The Scotiabank Employee Fundraising Program is for current Scotiabank employees only, but please encourage others to register for the race as well! When you sign up for online fundraising, you can then choose to be on the same Fundraising Team.

Can I use the Team Registration Form?

Please do not use the Team Registration Form to register. The Team Registration Form provides the ability to register and pay for multiple participants in one bulk transaction. Since participating employees are receiving a complimentary entry, no transaction is taking place. No matter how you register for the event (Regular Registration, Scotiabank Employee Registration, Team Registration), each person is still registered in our system as an individual. If you wish to create or join a Fundraising Team, you can do this when you create your Online Fundraising Account.
