Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon

October 1-31, 2020

The TSVC will be a participating charity in the 2020 Scotiabank Charity Challenge.

The COVID-19 pandemic has made this year a great challenge for everyone and the 2020 Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon has now transitioned to a virtual race.

During this extraordinary time of need you have the opportunity to PUT YOUR BEST FOOT FORWARD by joining or supporting the TSO|TEAM and helping us reach our fundraising goal of $25,000.

You can run or walk 5K, 10K, half or full marathon, or support a TSO|TEAM participant.
