Help us raise $25K for homeless cats!

support Annex cat Rescue in the Scotiabank Charity Challenge
Donate to the team

last updated Sep 22This fall, Annex Cat Rescue is once again participating in the Scotiabank Charity Challenge… our third time out and a chance to best our amazing 2016 fundraising achievement of $42,000, a sum made possible thanks to a $20,000 matching donation from an extremely generous donor.

And here’s the big news: that same angel donor is back for 2017, and will match any funds we raise up to $25,000! That means if we raise $25,000, we will have $50,000 for vet bills. What an amazing way to fête our 20th anniversary!

The participation rate in past years has been great and we encourage everyone to join our team for 2017. It’s fun and for a great cause. There is room for both casual walkers and dedicated runners. Children accompanied by adults are welcome! Participants in the Scotiabank Charity Challenge get a one-of-a-kind ACR team T-shirt and meet some fantastic people. There’s even prizes! Plus, any team member who raises at least $150 for ACR is eligible to have their race registration reimbursed.

5k finishers

Most of us are doing the 5k run/walk but you can run the Half-Marathon (21.1k) or Marathon (42.2k) on Sunday, October 22nd. It’s up to you!

To join our team, please email Joanna at so she can get you placed on our team. ***Note: you MUST register for the race using Annex Cat Rescue’s charity discount code in order for us to reimburse the fee.

Don’t delay — join today and help us help homeless cats!

And if you aren’t able to participate this year, you can still support Annex Cat Rescue by making a team donation.
