Lace Up for Carya in the 2016 Calgary Marathon

Carya is pleased to be one of the charities involved in the 2016 Scotiabank Calgary Marathon!

The annual marathon, which is being held on May 29, sees more than 12,000 participants run and walk 5km, 10 km, half marathon and full marathon races. There is even a special race program just for kids!

The event typically raises over one million dollars for various Calgary and area charities. Participants who chose to fund-raise can direct their funds to the organization of their choice by additionally registering for the “Charity Challenge“. And that’s where YOU can help Carya!

Not a runner? That’s okay! You can register for the 5 km walk – we even have a special code to save you $10 off the registration fees. The code also works for the other event runs – so whether you are walking or running, we have you covered!
