Let’s Run for Autism: Scotiabank Charity Challenge 2021

May 4th, 2021


Fun, Fitness, and Fundraise for AutismBC at the Scotiabank Vancouver Half-Marathon & 5K Virtual Race Charity Challenge from June 2 – July 5th, 2021!

Get together with friends, family, or colleagues to create a (physically distant) team and sign up for the Scotiabank Half Marathon and 5K Virtual Race Charity Challenge to support AutismBC. You can create your own peer-to-peer fundraising page where you can share your story, upload photos, tell people ‘what moves you’ to run, and ask people to support you with a donation to AutismBC.

100% of what you raise goes directly to AutismBC to fund autism programs, services, and initiatives throughout the province. We even have prizes for top fundraisers!

You can run, walk, roll, or ride anywhere in BC on your own route between June 2 and July 5, 2021. Choose your distance: 21k, 10K, 5K, the 1K Kids Race, or challenge yourself to complete the Repeat (5K and 10K) or Threepeat (5K, 10K, and 21K) Challenges. Have some fun and create a ‘theme team’: dress up, draw some fun signs, and add some noisemakers. Make it a party (but be sure to follow physical distancing protocols of course)!
