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 firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on how to register.
