Pass it on! Marathon

Toronto United Church Council is strongly committed to working with the Camps of Toronto Conference to renew their infrastructure and to continue to develop Council’s capital reserve funds for each camp to draw on.

Since 2008, Council and the camps have participated in the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon’s Charity Challenge. Each camp sends a contingent of walkers and runners who take pride in giving back to their camp and enjoy a day of physical activity with one another. This year, the cumulative fundraising from the nine years of our participation in the marathon reached more than $165,000.

Council has:

• established a capital reserve fund for each Camp that can be accessed for capital renewal projects.
• continued to build its own Camp Capital Care Fund to offer grants to the camps to offset the costs of property taxes and other capital expenses.
• continued to make its camp properties available rent free for United Church camping programs.

This year's marathon will take place on Sunday, October 21 2018. Events include the full marathon, half-marathon and 5k walk. If you would like to join the "Pass It On" marathon team, please contact Ali Hayes at (905) 771-5124 or
