Lace Up for Team carya!

We are so excited to be an Official Charity Partner for the 2022 Calgary Marathon, and we want you to join #Teamcarya!

This year we’re going to raise $5,000 with the help of our staff, Board of Directors, volunteers, and friends. Proceeds will be invested back into the community, ensuring all Calgarians are able to access the support and resources they need – when they need it.


There are lots of ways you can be a #Teamcarya MVP!


Run Or Walk With Us

Use our link to sign up for any Calgary Marathon event and carya will receive $5 of your registration fee. And 100% of the funds you raise for our team will go directly to help us in our mission of building strong families and communities for generations.

There are many different marathon events taking place – including a kids marathon, virtual experiences, 5 and 10k races, and more. The in-person event returns Sunday, May 29th.

Register for Team carya here.


Volunteer With Us

We’ll will also be cheering on the runners at the Scotiabank Charity Challenge Block Party on Sunday, May 29th and are looking for volunteers to help represent carya and support all the marathon runners.

The Block Party is on 6th Street SE between 6th and 9th Avenue from 6:30AM until 1:30PM and we have the following volunteer shifts available:

6AM-9AM: Set-Up (2 volunteers, able to carry/lift 50+lbs)
6:30AM-1:30PM: Race Time! Come down anytime to cheer on runners and spread the word about carya. We’ll have carya t-shirts available, or you can wear a costume, make a sign, and get into the team spirit!
11AM-2PM: Tear-Down (2 volunteers, able to carry/lift 50+lbs)

Contact Volunteer@caryacalgary.ca to sign up, or if you have questions.


Donate to The Team

If you’re not able to participate in a marathon or volunteer, no problem! You can still donate and support #Teamcarya with a one-time donation to our Charity Challenge.

Every dollar donated helps – and our team will be feeling extra fast come race day!
