Lace Up for Team Red Shoe


You may have noticed the streets of Halifax filling up early in the morning with walkers and runners. Training is well underway as people warm up for the biggest running event of the year – The Scotiabank Charity Challenge Blue Nose Marathon.

On May 15-17th the Blue Nose Marathon takes place around Halifax and Dartmouth. Events span the whole weekend and range from a Youth 2Km run to a Full Marathon. People of all ages and abilities can participate and experience the overwhelming sense of community. There are bands and live music set up every few kilometers, cheering fans along the whole route and a palpable energy that buzzes through the city the entire weekend.

The participants can make their event more meaningful by participating in the Scotiabank Charity Challenge by selecting from a list of over 70 charities to fundraise for. Ronald McDonald House Charities® Atlantic is overjoyed to receive the fundraising support of so many of these participants.

We have set up our own team of runners, known as Team Red Shoe, who are running on behalf of Ronald McDonald House Charities Atlantic. They have all set their own personal fundraising goals and are busy both training and reaching out to their friends and family for support. We are so proud of what they have already accomplished and cannot wait to witness their successes on the weekend.

We are still looking for support for our team! Join or support the team by clicking here.
