As many of you have heard, the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon has become a staple annual event at Across U-hub.

In the past three years, we successfully raised over $60,000 to provide opportunities for East Asian youth to develop leadership qualities, build their confidence and pursue their dreams. Across U-hub’s participants become encouraged and strengthened by each other’s determination and resiliency during their 5-month marathon training.

Make sure you use our step-by-step guide when you sign up!

Why Should You Join?

To Get In Shape

Training for the marathon will increase your endurance and stamina. Your heart will be stronger; your will have better blood circulation and your muscles will feel strengthened and energetic. You will also feel more upbeat and cheerful.

Raise Money for a Good Cause

While running a marathon for its own sake is an extremely satisfying experience, you are also giving yourself and other East Asian youth the opportunity to develop leadership qualities and uncover their potentials through fundraising for Across U-hub.

Improve Your Success In Life

Running a marathon is not only an achievement, research has proven that it can enhance success in other areas of life; for example, personal character development. You are also more likely to be friends with people who motivate and inspire positive thinking.
