Scotiabank Charity Challenge

Let’s run together for youth success!



The Scotiabank Charity Challenge will be held on Saturday, April 22, and Sunday, April 23, 2017, at Parc Jean-Drapeau in Montreal.

Toujours ensemble is participating in the Scotiabank Challenge for the first time this year, and our goal is to raise $15,000.

Come join the Toujours ensemble family and run to help our young people succeed. All of the money raised will fund our mission and activities.

You can help in three ways:

  • Run and raise money for Toujours ensemble
  • Run and make a donation to Toujours ensemble (choose the organization that you want to support when you are asked if you want to participate in the Charity Challenge.) Making a donation to Toujours ensemble allows you to get a discount on the registration fee.
  • Make a donation to Toujours ensemble

Runners and fundraisers: Create your team

When you run on behalf of Toujours ensemble, you are directly contributing to the well-being of Verdun youth, and every dollar raised will directly fund activities and services.

Plus, you’ll get a discount on your registration fees and help Toujours ensemble qualify for one of nine cash prizes given to participating organizations.

Tax receipts are also issued for all donations of $20 or more.

Don’t wait: Register right away to run and raise money!

On the registration form, you’ll be asked whether you want to participate in the challenge as a fundraiser. 

  • Follow the instructions to create a fundraising account.
  • The posted fees will be adjusted depending on the Charity PIN Code you enter.*

Note: Don’t enter your PIN in the “Promo Code” box on the first screen; you will have to enter it later when you select the charity you want to support.

Don’t forget to include your PIN Code when you submit your form, as this gives you access to the preferential rate.

What support does Toujours ensemble provide to runners/fundraisers?

When you register for the run, you have access to:


  • A fundraising site (which you can personalize and use to collect online donations),
  • Email asks, Facebook statuses, and thank-you messages,
  • Tips to help you fundraise or prepare for the race.


What is the minimum amount I have to raise?

There is no minimum. Upon request, Toujours ensemble will reimburse the registration fees to anyone who raises at least $350.*


*For participants who make a donation to their own fundraising campaign, note that your registration fees will be deducted from the value of the full donation for tax receipt purposes.


When do I register?

As soon as possible! Spots are limited, and some runs – especially the 5K – are very popular.



Do the runs have a time limit?

Yes, but they have been set so that as many people as possible can participate. For example, the time limit for the 5K is 1 hour and 15 minutes, which means that walkers can join too.



How do I get to the Charity Challenge run site? Are there food and water stations along the course? Where do I get my runner's packet?
