Gather your courage, and strap on your running shoes, because Make-A-Wish® Southern Alberta is bringing you the chance to run for Hope, Strength and Joy! Take on this incredible thrill at Scotiabank Calgary Marathon Charity Challenge, and help grant life-changing wishes for kids with critical illnesses. We are looking for our biggest team yet and want to raise enough to grant a wish!
This year we are announcing our new Make-A-Wish KIDS FOR WISH KIDS team at the Kids Marathon.
This is a unique format that allows young people to participate in their first marathon. Kids start running or walking their marathon one KM at a time completing 41 KM by Sunday, May 26th, 2019. On race day the kids will complete the last 1.2 KM of their marathon along with elite and citizen runners at the Scotiabank Calgary Marathon.
Use this tracking chart, keep tabs on your kids km's leading up to race weekend and share wish stories along the way!
We still need the adults out as well!
You can choose any of the race options: Kids Marathon, 5K Family Walk & Run, 10K, 21.2K, 42.2K or the 50K Ultra!
