Thank you for supporting Champions at the Scotiabank Marathon!
Monday, May 27, 2013
1 day, over 12 000 runners, and $930 000 raised for charities in Calgary. And we don't want to attempt to calculate how many miles Calgarians logged running for their favourite charities, mostly because we are a little weary this morning after an amazing day in the sun yesterday.
For our team at Champions, it was the first time we participated in the Charity Challenge for the Calgary Marathon and we are extremely thankful for all the support we received. In total, Champions received donations from 83 different individuals and raised over $6 000, beating our goal of $5 000. Team Champions had 13 runners, including staff, board members, and friends and loved ones, out on the course seeking to "Redefine Ability" through their participation and fundraising.
From all of us here at Champions, thank you for supporting us in this amazing event and we look forward to doing it all again next year!
