Scotiabank Charity Challenge

Let’s run together for youth success!

The Scotiabank Charity Challenge will be held on April 27, and 28, 2019, at Parc Jean-Drapeau in Montreal. Toujours ensemble is participating in the Scotiabank Challenge for the third time.

Take up the challenge with our youth from the running club Toujours en forme! 

Come join the Toujours ensemble family and run or walk to help our young people succeed. By taking part in this run with Te, you are showing young people that they can tackle their own challenge. Whether you participate alone or on a team, we will be there for you before, during and after your run to provide you with a training plan, fundraising ideas, and the best possible moral support. Fun guaranteed!

All of the money raised will fund our mission and activities

Supporting Toujours ensemble means encouraging Verdun youth to overcome their challenges!

You make it possible for these young people to:

  • Receive integrated and ongoin support in both elementary and high school to help them stay in school
  • Enjoy extracurricular activities, outings, annual camps, and a summer program (for youths aged 9 to 17)
  • Get full and balanced meals.
