Scotiabank Charity Challenge

Run for You. Run For Community.

The 2020 Scotiabank Charity Challenge is open and now fully integrated in to your race registration.

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. Make your run more meaningful by helping one of our official Charities reach their goals while you are achieving yours! 

Giving Since 2003

Congratulations on helping surpass $75 million!


The Scotiabank Charity Challenge began in 2003 across the country collectively raising over $75 million which went directly to charities throughout Canada.

The 2019 Scotiabank Calgary Marathon Charity Challenge raised over $680,000 for 78 local charities to help young people reach their infinite potential, and build vibrant communities! In its ten year history, the Scotiabank Charity Challenge has helped raise more than $8 million in Calgary. This adds to the 5 other Scotiabank sponsored marathon events across Canada, in Montreal, Halifax, Ottawa, Toronto and Vancouver, bringing the national grand total of the Scotiabank Charity Challenge thus far to more than $75 million dollars!

Make your run more meaningful by helping one of our official Charities reach their goals while you are achieving yours!  Set up a fundraising page or make a direct donation during your race registration.  As Scotiabank covers all the fees associated with online fundraising, 100% of the funds raised will go directly to your chosen charity.
