On behalf of the board, staff members, service users, and volunteers of ACAS, we want to express our gratitude to all our runners, walkers, donors, sponsors, allies and supporters for helping us surpass our $20,000 fundraising goal at the 2014 Scotia Run Challenge before the race! 

The Scotiabank Waterfront Marathon, Half Marathon, and 5k Run will take place this Sunday, Oct 17, 2014. For this year’s charity challenge, ACAS has a total of 26 registered runners and walkers and 5 teams raising funds for the agency. From our participation at the charity challenge event the past four years, this year brings us our best record to date. As of today, we have raised a total of $21,886 from 337 donors and sponsors!!!

Your donation will greatly benefit all the service users of ACAS from the East and Southeast Asian HIV and LGBTQ communities in the Greater Toronto Area. Your generosity has allowed us to continue with our goal to support our community and care for our future.

To see a list of the results from the team and top individual fundraisers, you can visit the ACAS 2014 Scotia Run Charity Challenge Fundraising Page. Please note that you can still sponsor and support ACAS at the Scotia Run 2014 Charity Challenge until Sunday, October 26, by clicking on the team name or the individual fundraiser you would like to sponsor:


All donations over $20 will receive a tax receipt.

Once again, we want to thank YOU!!!

Information for Runners and Walkers:

For the runners and walkers who requested that we pick up the race kits on your behalf, you will need to meet us on the race day, Sunday October 19, 2014 at 6:40 am sharp at the Tim Horton’s at 148 Simcoe St, Toronto, ON M5H 3G4 (major intersection University Ave and Richmond Street W. Simcoe Street is one street west of University Avenue). Please note the last shuttle bus leave at 7am from Richmond and Simcoe.

All other runners and walkers, we encourage you to join us at the same time at the above location (Sunday October 19, 2014 at 6:40 am sharp at the Tim Horton’s at 148 Simcoe St) so we can all take the shuttle together to the 5k starting point at Lakeshore Boulevard West just west of Ontario Drive and have our team photo taken. If you plan to go to the race location yourself, we will meet the pre-race waiting area close to the public portable washroom facilities at 7:30 am.
