We are excited about some new events we have planned for the fall – fun community events, all in support of The Children’s Book Bank.
The Children’s Book Bank Fall Fundraiser
Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon – Charity Challenge
This October 22nd, the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon will play host to thousands of runners, spectators and volunteers from all over the world as they take to the streets to run, walk and wheel through Toronto’s waterfront. The Scotiabank Charity Challenge was created as a community-building initiative offering a great fundraising opportunity for local non-profits.
We are looking to people who register for the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon, Half Marathon & 5k (run or walk) to create an online fundraising account to help raise funds for The Children’s Book Bank.
The Children’s Book Bank is hoping to raise $15,000 through STWM to support our literacy programming including our Dictionaries for Newcomers, Books for Babies, Books Across the City, School trips with Story-time, Readers to Leaders and our After School Program.
We will kick off our “Bookworm to Road Runner” exercise campaign in early July, giving us 14 weeks until marathon day. And we’ve got a Couch-to-5k plan where we will be tracking our team members’ progress and sharing our journey via our blog and social media. We hope you’ll join us for all the fun!
