We’re at it again!  Our YMCA of Greater Halifax/Dartmouth Fundraising Team are preparing for the Scotiabank Blue Nose Marathon, we have 4 teams this year participating in the Killam Marathon Team Relay, and we’ve already begun to reach our individual fundraising goals for the Strong Kids Campaign! The Blue Nose Marathon is held in Halifax during the Victoria Day weekend (May 18-21).

The Scotiabank Blue Nose Marathon is a fully inclusive marathon for individuals of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities. In total, there are 7 running and walking categories to choose from: See here for a full description of the routes.

Routes will vary depending on which race you participate in. Through individual, and team fundraising efforts, we will be able to contribute to meaningful initiatives that will help the YMCA build stronger communities. Never fund-raised before? No problem! We can offer suggestions, support, and group fundraising events to help get you started.

Looking to get your kids involved? We hoped so. There is the Doctors of Nova Scotia Youth Run

Ps. Did you know that more than 270 schools and more than 17,500 young runners in Nova Scotia participated the Doctors Nova Scotia Kids Run Club this year? Find out more about how your child can stay active all year round with Kids Run Club.

When you cross that finish line, you’ll glow with YMCA of Greater Halifax/Dartmouth’s standard post-race glory, knowing that you’ve just provided an incredible experience and dozens of opportunities for kids in our community – not to mention a nice shiny Finishers Medal to wear proudly.

2018 has brought many exciting changes for our Y Family, and this event promises to be nothing short of a great time. We hope that you’ll make the YMCA of Greater Halifax/Dartmouth your charity of choice for the Scotiabank Blue Nose Marathon. If you need our support, we’ll be here every step of the way!
