Banking on a Brighter Future

There are a lot of things we love about the Scotiabank Half Marathon. For starters, Canuck Forward Mason Raymond is the Honorary Chair of the event (this is one charity that’s Canucks crazy year round.)

Mason announced an impressive $524,000 was raised for 29 local charities, which brings us to another favourite fact – BC Children’s Hospital is one of the 29 charities.

On July 21st, Scotiabank will award an additional $5000 to the top three teams who raised the most for charity. It’s not to late to donate to you favourite charity. Donations will be accepted until July 11th, 2010, so feel free to click here and find your friends and family who participated in the run.

Over 5,400 runners participated in the half marathon and five kilmetre races, setting a new record for the run. And, at the end of the day, there’s nothing better than watching people beat their personal best while running for a brighter future in the lives of BC kids. Well done!
