The Scotiabank Charity Challenge is a unique fundraising program where participants make their run or walk more meaningful by raising funds for a charity in their community. The Challenge unites the spirit of runners with a unique fundraising program to help create a stronger future for young people and build vibrant communities.
In 2019, the Capilano University team raised over $10,000 with more than 50 participants, including CapU employees, faculty, students and alumni, as well as individuals from the Harvest Project. The CapU team also had student cheerleaders from CapU's English for Academic Purposes (EAP) program cheering them on at the end of the race.
50% of funds raised will support the CapU Student Bursary, supporting students who face financial barriers. The other 50% of funds raised will benefit the Harvest Project, an organization that reaches out to people across the North Shore who are challenged by family break-down, illness, job loss and poverty.
