2017 Scotiabank Charity Challenge

Our goal is to raise $20,000 for lung health in Nova Scotia and to build a team of 25+ participants.

For the first time in our history, the Lung Association of Nova Scotia (LANS), is teaming up with the Scotiabank Blue Nose Marathon and participating the 2017 Charity Challenge. Since the launch of the program in 2003, the Scotiabank Charity Challenge has raised over $50 million for various charities across the country. The challenge allows all registered Canadian-based charity to build a fundraising team and participate in the Scotiabank Blue Nose Charity Challenge.

On Victoria Day weekend (May 19 - 21), LANS is welcoming runners, walkers, families and wheelchair athletes of all ages and athletic ability to participant in Atlantic Canada’s largest walking and running event.
