The Scotiabank Charity Challenge is a unique opportunity for runners and walkers to fundraise for charities in our community. Everyday runners like you make the difference, going that extra mile for charity! Every dollar raised goes directly to your charity of choice. Scotiabank pays for all transaction fees, credit card fees and the cost of the fundraising platform. The Scotiabank Vancouver Half-Marathon & 5k Charity Challenge started with just 4 charities in 2005. This past year over 80 charities took part and almost $1 million raised. Help us raise even more for our charity partners in 2018! Below is an alphabetical list of our 2018 partners. Check back regularly as we continue to add more charity partners each week!
