Scotiabank Charity Challenge – It’s going virtual!

Walk, run, donate!

It’s time to lace up your sneakers for the CCA! Walk/run for celiac disease and gluten disorder awareness and research


The annual Scotiabank Charity Challenge is going virtual and now more people can participate and support the CCA. We are looking for people to join the month long virtual races and help to raise funds for celiac disease and gluten disorders.

You can walk or run a virtual marathon, half marathon, 10 or 5 km  – or do the “Whole Shebang” (every race length) over the course of the entire month. Log your kilometres using your FitBit, Garmin or preferred app or device or even manually.

Our goal is to log 8,000 kilometres (or 5,500 miles) which is the distance across Canada and raise $25,000 –  which breaks down to approximately $3 per kilometre (or $5 per mile) using the various race lengths that people wish to use. Anyone in the world can participate and support the CCA. Challenge your friends and family members or create a virtual relay team.

CCA is up against hundreds other charities to see who can raise the most for their cause. Top charities will win additional funding for their organizations.
