Are you up for the challenge?
Join team ‘Canadian Celiac’ for the Scotiabank Charity Challenge in Toronto!
Date: August 28, 2018
The CCA is proud to announce that we will be participating in the 2018 Scotiabank Charity Challenge in partnership with the Canada Running Series and Toronto Waterfront Marathon this October! Gear up, and get your sneakers and bottles ready to join us on Sunday, October 21, 2018.
We are encouraging everyone to ‘Go Beyond the Gut’ and get involved. You can sign up to take part in a 5k walk/run or a half/full marathon while helping to raise funds for CCA.
Why join us?
- Exercise is an important component in staying healthy, especially those with celiac disease. Training for the 5K, half or full marathon helps you meet your fitness goals
- Meet new people and get connected with those who also have celiac disease or gluten intolerance
- Help raise funds to allow CCA to continue researching for a cure, supporting programs and advocating
- Get some great swag for helping us reach our donation goals!
Help us raise $30,000!
We have big shoes to fill! Our goal in our first ever Scotiabank Charity event is to sign up 60 people and to raise $30,000! Can you help us get there? Sign up and join our team ‘Canadian Celiac’. If you can’t come to Toronto, sponsor a CCA runner/walker on the team to get us to our goal.
