ScotiaBank Charity Challenge

4-H BC is excited to announce our participation in the Scotiabank Charity Challenge – Toronto ‘Virtual’ Waterfront Marathon, this October. We want you to join us for some friendly competition with 4-H’ers across the country, and to help us raise funds in support of 4-H BC.

You don’t have to be a distance runner to be part of the fun! To make participating accessible to everyone, you can walk, run, rollerblade, skateboard or even ride your horse! You can also choose to complete a 5K, 10K, half or full Marathon, or go for it and do all the distances! Just pick an active way to demonstrate healthy living and get yourself out and moving.

Because of its virtual format, this year’s Marathon is self-reporting and can be done from anywhere in the province. We are dedicating October 25 – 31,2020 as ‘4-H Week’, and you’ll have all week long to complete your distances. Please use this link to register:

There are several ways you can join in.

1. Sign up and participate under Team 4-H BC. The more, the merrier! Join our team from anywhere in the province and help us reach our fundraising goals. Go Team Green, Go!

2. Sign up as a team captain. You can start up your own team, whether it’s a 4-H club, a family team, co-workers, or friends, take the lead and get your group working together for fun and for fundraising.

3. Sign up as a team member of an existing team. Find a team to join and give it your all. Raise sponsorship dollars and contribute to your teams overall total. Invite other team members to join or find another team to challenge. Any way you look at it, being part of a team is what it’s all about.

4. Sponsor a runner. If you’re unable to walk or run, you can still join in by sponsoring another team or runner. Every dollar brings us closer to our goals. It helps ensure that 4-H in British Columbia will be able to continue to empower future generations of youth. To make a donation click here now:
