Make Every Step Count for Your Community

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

In 2016, participants raised $597,000 for 85 community charities through the Scotiabank Charity Challenge at Blue Nose Marathon. Your hard work and commitment to fundraising made a significant impact in our communities.

There are multiple ways to participate in the Scotiabank Charity Challenge:

  • Register for the 5KM, 10KM, Half Marathon, Full Marathon, Marathon Team Relay, or Youth Run at this year’s Blue Nose Marathon
  • Donate to a fundraiser or team, or view our list of official charities to make a direct donation
  • Register as an official charity

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