CECI is pleased to announce that for the 9th consecutive year, we will be participating in the Scotia Bank Charity Challenge! The event will take place April 25th and 26th at Jean Drapeau Parc Montreal. Registration is now open, come participate with us!

We had an amazing event last year. Over 100 participants ran or walked with us and together we raised over $75,000 for our international development and cooperation projects!


The event is open to everyone. Whether you are a trained runner or only exercise occasionally. You can even walk if you prefer! 

21km - Run (Starts  Sunday, April 26 at 9am)
10km - Run (Starts Saturday, April 25 at 9am)
5km - Run, walk, walk with a stroller (Starts Saturday, April 25 at 11am)
1km - Children’s Run, ages 2 - 13 (Starts Saturday, April 25 at 12h45pm)

If you aren’t available on the day of the event, we invite you to support one of CECI’s Charity Challenge runners and contribute to our international development projects!


Choose your cause! Participants can register for one of 5 teams supporting various CECI projects: 

Team ACOSME: supporting maternal and infant health in Haïti;
Team ÉDUFAM: supporting the education of girls in the African Great Lakes;
Team PAEFFR: supporting women entrepreneurship in Benin; 
Team SUSASAN: supporting the integration of marginalized communities into Nepal’s democratic process.
The Armande Bégin Fund team : for women's empowerment in Mali

Funds raised will be donated to the chosen project. 

We will be here to support you and give you plenty of tips.You will be amazed at what you can achieve!


CECI covers the cost of your registration fee for the race. However, a minimum amount of fundraising is required to balance these costs, namely: 

21km: $80
10km: $65
5km / 5km with stroller: $55
1km Children’s Run: $25

Set challenging, yet realistic fundraising goals. We will be here to help you!

Sign up now! Annually the Charity Challenge has more and more participants and spaces are limited. 

We hope to see you at the start line on April 25 and April 26, 2020 at Jean Drapeau Parc in Montreal!
