Become an official Scotiabank Charity Challenge charity

Sign-up your charity or organization to join the 2021 Scotiabank Charity Challenge and start recruiting people to run and fundraise for your cause! Participants raised over $414,000 in 2020!

FOUR benefits of participating in the Scotiabank Charity Challenge:

  1. Tamarack Ottawa Virtual Race Weekend 2021 is an organized and promoted virtual event that takes place from May 1-31, which charities can participate in without running any financial risk, allowing donations to take precedence over logistics;
  2. Scotiabank assumes all the costs associated with fundraising, so every dollar received goes directly to your charity!
  3. Charities and fundraisers are given free access to Race Roster, the online registration and fundraising platform that allows charities and participants to easily automate their fundraising with editable team and personal fundraising pages;
  4. You’ll have fun training (we provide this too!), fundraising and crossing a finish line with your team of like-minded people!
