As many of you are now familiar, the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon has become a yearly fundraising event at Across U-hub. The marathoners run or walk to raise money for a mission we all believe in, and together we make visible East Asian youth power in the community.

In the past three years, we successfully raised over $60,000 to provide more East Asian youth the opportunity to develop leadership qualities and a platform to uncover their potentials. The marathoners’ determination and resiliency were inspired by each other through a 5 months marathon training schedule.
