Scotiabank Rat Race for United Way

Love to run? Then run the good race! For a decade and a half, the Scotiabank Rat Race for United Way has been welcoming community-minded folks for an official 5K run (or walk) through the streets of downtown Toronto. And, every year, participants go the distance—with 100% of the money raised going directly to changing lives across Toronto and York Region.
