Welcome to the 2018

Charity Challenge!

What is the Scotiabank Charity Challenge?

Make every step count for your community

The Scotiabank Charity Challenge unites the spirit of runners with a unique fundraising program to help create a stronger future for young people and build vibrant communities.

 

In 2017, participants raised over $190,000 for 28 community charities through the Scotiabank Charity Challenge at the Mississauga Marathon.  Your hard work and commitment to fundraising made a significant impact in our communities.

 

By helping one of our official charities reach their goals while you are achieving yours!  As Scotiabank covers all the fees associated with online fundraising, 100%* of the funds you raise will go directly to your chosen charity.

 

We all run for different reasons. We encourage you to run for what moves you!

 

Register for the 2k, 5k, 10k, half marathon, marathon or the relays at this years’ Mississauga Marathon. During the process of registration, you’ll be given the option to sign up for the Scotiabank Charity Challenge to fundraise for a participating charity.

 

Congratulations on helping surpass $60 million!

Since the Scotiabank Charity Challenge began in 2003 you’ve helped raise over $62 million – which went directly to charities across Canada to create a stronger future for young people and build vibrant communities.

*Scotiabank pays for online transaction fees when fundraisers use the Artez fundraising platform.
