Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon 2016
On Sunday October 16th our team participated in the half and full marathon, and the 5-kilometre run/walk at the STWM, our 13th year at the Scotiabank Charity Challenge
What a team at the STWM!
Giant Steps was awarded with 1st prize for Largest Number of Fundraising Participants this year at the STWM Awards Night on November 28.
Scotiabank’s cheque for $6,000 brings our marathon total this year to over $96,000!
Huge thanks to all our participants who came out in their lime green tshirts to represent Giant Steps, and to our generous donors who made a difference for every child in the Giant Steps program.
Our largest annual fundraising event, our success at the marathon enables every child at Giant Steps to receive hands-on speech, behaviour and occupational therapy programs.
In 2015, we passed an amazing benchmark --- over ONE MILLION DOLLARS raised since we began participating in this event in 2004.
We are now in great company with Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation, Team in Training and Fountain of Love & Life, all of us members of STWM’s $1 Million Fundraising Club!
Our heartfelt thanks to Scotiabank and Canada Running Series for enabling charities like ours to participate in a world-class event AND fulfill our mission!
Scotiabank generously pays for the online transaction fees, enabling 100% of donations to come directly to Giant Steps.
