Bluenose Marathon Charity Challenge

Posted By on January 16, 2018


We invite you to join us to make CF history while marking your own historical achievement by being part of the Bluenose Marathon Charity Challenge on Team CF!

The Scotiabank Bluenose Marathon is known as “the people’s marathon” and welcomes over 13,000 participants of all ages and abilities each year on the weekend of May 18-20 (race day depends on your chosen distance). With distances from 5k to 42.2k, there is a route that will appeal to everyone, of any ability, who has an interest in walking or running. The Charity Challenge is an incredible way to accomplish an incredible personal goal, be a part of one of the most exciting events in Halifax, and raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis Canada.

Anyone who is registered for the Scotiabank Bluenose Marathon can join Team CF, but because you are one of our invaluable partners, we want to offer you an opportunity to SKIP THE REGISTRATION FEE! We have a free registration for a member of Kin District 7 waiting for you. If you are interested in participating and raising funds for Team CF, here’s how it will work:

-Before January 29, 2018, submit your name, contact, why you want to join Team CF (in a short paragraph –between 2 and 250 words – concise is best, as you can see) and Kin Club to Charity Challenge Team CF Lead, Adrienne Dean ( All Kin names will be entered in a draw and one lucky winner will receive a free registration code. (Don’t worry, if you are not the lucky winner of the free registration, you can still register and join Team CF.)

-Once you are registered, you will receive a link to a super easy online fundraising portal that you can share with your family, friends, Kin-family, and whomever you like! They can donate online to help you reach your goal and receive a tax receipt right away by email. Most people on Team CF raise over $200, and we will help you with any ideas.

-If events, personal asks, returning your recycling, bake sales, whatever you like, are more your speed you can do that as well! We will outline all of that once you join the team.

-Between now and the Bluenose, you will have the opportunity to join our Team CF (private) Facebook group so you can stay in touch with other members, maybe share your training tips, motivation, your favorite running tunes, fundraising ideas….

-Here’s the best part…your funds that you raise will be allocated to your own Kin Club and count toward your service contribution. In true Bluenose fashion everyone wins (and gets a really cool medal at the finish line)!

Remember – the deadline to enter is January 29, 2018 and all you need to do is send your name, contact information and Kin Club name to Adrienne ( If you have any questions at all, please call her at 902-425-2462, ext 3.
Hope to see you at the finish line!
