Scotiabank Calgary Marathon & Half Marathon, 10K, 5K Calgary, AB Canada
Come alone, with a friend or a team and support the Guru Nanak Dev Ji DIL Research Chair. We’ve created a team for the 2015 Scotiabank Charity Challenge at the Scotiabank Calgary Marathon - will you join us?
We’re making our race more meaningful by supporting GURU NANAK DEV JI DIL (HEART) RESEARCH CHAIR.
100% of all funds raised will go directly to support the research chair. All donations made will receive a tax receipt for a charity donation.
Research is the foundation of Change. With reserach we can make improvements - in our health, in our life and day to day living. With research we can save lives! All funds raised from the Calgary Marathon will be used to fund The Guru Nanak Dev Ji DIL (Heart) Research Chair. This chair will benefit the community as it studies the cardiovascular health in the South Asian population.
The resarch will concentrate on developing effective, ethno-culturally sensitive programs aimed at prevention and management of heart disease. Ultimately, this should reduce the burden of illness on families, promote quality of life and reduce mortality.
There are many options to join..whether you wan to run the ultra marathon or simply have an active day with the family (5 km walk/run) and it can all be done while supporting an important cause.
