Pull up your lucky socks and double knot your favourite running shoes. The Scotiabank Marathon hits Toronto again this year on Oct. 20, 2013. Thousands will run or walk the race course that stretches along the city’s waterfront. Participants can choose from the 5K, half marathon or full marathon.
Are your feet itching to join in? Why not make your walk or run more meaningful? Epilepsy Ontario is partnering with Epilepsy Simcoe County and Epilepsy York as one of the official charities in this year’s Scotiabank Charity Challenge. You can dedicate your race to a loved one or simply use this opportunity to raise awareness about epilepsy.
As a member of our team, you can raise money to help us continue to serve Ontarians living with epilepsy. Contact Epilepsy Ontario at firstname.lastname@example.org before you register for the race to get your discount code.
To register, please visit the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon registration page.
Not much of a runner? You can still make a difference by sponsoring our team and help us reach our goal of $10,000. Every donation counts. Thanks to the generosity of people like you, Epilepsy Ontario is able to:
- Provide client services such as referrals to local agencies
- Educate the public by distributing information through pamphlets, our website and our 1-800 line
- Organize provincial programs including Summerfest Camp for kids with epilepsy
- Engage community leaders in advocacy initiatives to empower people with epilepsy
