Run for the YNC in the Bluenose Marathon Scotiabank Charity Challenge


Saturday, May 16, 2015 - Sunday, May 17, 2015
All Day


Come join the YNC and run in the Blue Nose Marathon and raise funds for our organization!

The Blue Nose Marathon Scotiabank Charity Challenge was launched in 2009 and has raised over $1,000,000 for hundreds of charities. Runners can join a charity team, fundraise for them and then participate in any of the races offered.

Running in the Blue Nose is VERY fun with a big encouraging crowd cheering you on – plus you get a free marathon t-shirt and get to go to a post-race event at the Forum. And running in the race is a great opportunity to raise awareness about your favourite endangered species that our face painter will help you promote!


Our goal is to raise $3500 this year and you can help support us by either:

1.     Registering for one of the races and fundraising for the Young Naturalists Club (you can run and fundraise by yourself or become a member of our “Nature Nuts” team that will participate in the Youth Run)

2.     Sponsoring a YNC runner or donating directly to the Young Naturalists Club


Again we have 10 free registrations for racers who commit to fundraising for the Young Naturalists Club.  This year we are offering one free registration per family.

Fundraising is made easy by the use of the Bluenose Charity Challenge website. You can create your own page and set your own fundraising goals. It is easy to send emails inviting your friends and colleagues to ask for their sponsorship.

We also will give each race fundraiser a Lee Valley Pocket Nature Guide if they get two friends or family members to sign up as race fundraisers as well.



  • If you or anyone in your family is interested in running and fundraising for the Young Naturalists Club please contact Robin at or call 902-455-5643.
