In 2004 the Bluenose Marathon was born in Nova Scotia as a running event to showcase Halifax and Dartmouth. The event has since grown to welcome 13,000 participants annually and feature 6 running events: a 5KM, 10KM, half marathon, full marathon, marathon team relay, and two youth runs – a 4KM and 2KM.
The Scotiabank Charity Challenge offers the opportunity for runners and walkers of the Blue Nose Marathon to make their experience more meaningful by encouraging participants to fundraise while they train for a charity that is important to them.
Join Team Arthritis on May 20th and 21st in the Scotiabank Charity Challenge and support the more than 4.6 million Canadians living with arthritis! The addition of the Active Living Expo with 70 vendors and more than 80 booths makes the event a perfect complement to The Society’s vision of living well while creating a future without arthritis.
Those interested in the event are encouraged to register online. Create an online fundraising account for Team Arthritis and begin raising funds to support the 462,000 Atlantic Canadians living with arthritis!
