Council's Annual Pass It On! Marathon in support of United Church camps - October 18 2015

Each year a dedicated group of camp supporters assembles bright and early in downtown Toronto to walk or run in the Charity Challenge at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon, Half-Marathon, and 5 k. The annual marathon is one way that Council supports the five United Church Camps in Toronto Conference, raising over $120,000 for their property maintenance and renewal needs since 2008. It’s also a chance for those who have enjoyed camp themselves or witnessed what it can accomplish in the lives of others to give something back or "Pass It On."

If you’ve never participated before please consider joining Council’s board and staff and teams from all five camps on Sunday October 18 2015. The event is a lot of fun and you don't have to be a "runner" to join us. Just pick your distance (5k, half-marathon, or marathon) and we'll help you invite your network to sponsor you (kids can participate in the 5k with adult supervision. Strollers and wheelchairs are welcome). Choose to fundraise for one camp or support all five! Anyone walking or running for the camps is eligible for special charity entry rates and if you commit to raising over $200 you can register for free! Please contact Ali Hayes at 905-771-5124 ex. 31 or for more information on how to register.
