Scotiabank Charity Challenge

Below are the instructions on how to register and set up someone as Team Captain, which is the start to recruit and fundraise for your Chapter.


  • There is NO ACCESS CODE needed (this option comes up as you first go to register for the race)
  • If you have participated before your personal data is populated once you enter your email and password.
  • There is NO PROMO CODE
  • You can add family participants at one time.
  • When asked ‘do you want to participate in the Scotiabank Charity Challenge as a fundraiser or make a donation’? ANSWER YES! This is important to be able to automatically set up your personal fundraising page.
  • Choose Autism Ontario when asked, then create your fundraising page.

If you choose to set up a team – please start the team name with Autism Ontario followed by the Chapter – so that I am easily able to track all the donations.
