Run for women’s rights with the 'Crossroads International Team' in the Banque Scotia 21k de Montreal

Crossroads International is excited to be taking part in the Banque Scotia 21k de Montreal Charity Challenge as an official charity! After the success and fun that was had participating in the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon last October, we are very excited to be joined by our supporters in Montreal as we run and walk in support of women’s rights!

On April 22 and 23 you can run or walk in either the 5km, 10km or 21km while fundraising in support of Crossroads International! You don’t have to have marathon experience to run this marathon. There are distances to suit all levels of experience and once you register to run for Crossroads International, you’ll receive running tips and news straight to your inbox leading up to the race day.

As an official charity, race registrants can select Crossroads International as their charity of choice and use the provided online fundraising platform to fundraise in support of Crossroads International! The weekend and race will be fun and festive with a series of free events being held by the Banque Scotia 21k de Montreal Charity Challenge! More information can be found by clicking here.
