In the spirit of promoting health and wellness, our biggest fundraiser of the year is Scotiabank Charity Challenge. The 2017 Scotiabank Charity Challenge fundraiser held on June 25, 2017 was a big success. Eastside Family Place raised $4,406.
The next Scotiabank Charity Challenge Fundraiser will take place on Sunday June 24, 2018. Our goal is to raise $10,000 for the programs and services at ESFP. We hope you will help us next year to reach our target and ask you to please consider supporting our Eastside Family Strollers Team and our team members. This truly is a fun family-friendly fundraiser.
There are a number of ways in which you can support our team and fundraising efforts:
- Donate: We gratefully welcome all donations – no amount is too small. You can make a donation online via the Team page or you can send us a cheque or pay in person. Just let us know that you’re supporting our Eastside Strollers team. If you would like further information, please use the form below.
Join our team: You don’t have to be a runner to join our team because we have a family-friendly 5 KM walking option. So it’s your choice whether you participate in the half marathon or 5 KM runs or in the 5 KM walk. Children in strollers are welcome to join the 5 KM walk. As this is a fundraiser for Eastside Family Place, we are asking all team members to commit to raising a minimum of $200.
Sponsor a team member: We welcome sponsors of individual team members. This is a great way to encourage participation. The minimum sponsorship level is $250, and this covers the participant’s registration fee and their $200 fundraising contribution to Eastside Family Place.
Sponsor our team: We are seeking a major sponsor for Eastside Strollers. This is a great fit for a company wishing to positively align with families and children.
