Scotiabank Charity Challenge

I only registered to run, but now I want to raise money for a charity. Is it too late?

You can still fundraise! Set up a personalized fundraising page by:

  • Log into your RaceRoster Account
  • On your Dashboard there is a place to join a team, simply click, choose your charity and create your fundraising page.

Should I create a Fundraising Team? How do I set up or join a Fundraising Team?

Fundraising Teams should only be created for a charity if separate tracking is required, or if you would like to fundraise with your family or friends. All donations, whether you fundraise as an individual or as part of a team, will be directed to your charity of choice.

To set up a fundraising team:

  • Log into your RaceRoster Account
  • On your Dashboard there is a place to join or create a team, simply click, choose your team name (the team captain needs to set this up) and create your fundraising page.

How do I get a pledge form?

Please contact your Charity for a pledge form.

How do I make a donation to a Charity?

  1. Select a charity from the list of Official Charities
  2. Click on the Donate button

How do I change my email address on my fundraising page?

Log into your RaceRoster Account, on your Dashboard, there is a place to edit your registration information, simply click on edit and make your changes.

Who do I contact for support?

Please contact your charity representative, or for further assistance, contact:

Darren Brackley at charitychallenge@bluenosemarathon.com or 902.237.6465

Can I use Facebook to ask my family and friends to donate to my campaign?

Yes, you can link them to your fundraising page by simply copying the URL for the page into your message on Facebook. HOWEVER please be warned that Facebook will ask after you posted the link if you want to ask your Facebook friends to support you and you need to say no or decline as they (Facebook) have their own fundraising platform and people would be donating to Facebook’s platform. This will create a big problem. So again post your link on your home page but do not click on Ask friends to donate button even though it seems intuitively the correct thing to do.

How do I make a donation to an Individual or a Team?

Click Here and select donate to a team or individual from the menu on the left.
