Nourish Nova Scotia

Blue Nose Marathon Charity Challenge


Congratulations and thank you to all our Team Nourish 2017 supporters!  

Are you planning to run or walk in the Scotiabank Blue Nose Marathon (Full, Half, 10km, 5km, Relay or Youth Run)?  Join Team Nourish to help fuel Nova Scotia kids with school breakfast! Every dollar raised helps support food and nutrition programs in Nova Scotia schools.  Last year, Nourish Nova Scotia helped school breakfast programs provide over 5 million healthy breakfasts. In just three years, Team Nourish has raised more than $24,000 to help create healthy learning environments for children and youth across the province.

Nourish is participating in the Scotiabank Blue Nose Charity Challenge - an opportunity for runners, walkers and supporters to make the Blue Nose Marathon more meaningful by raising funds to support the nutritional health of Nova Scotia students.

Nourish Nova Scotia is the largest funder of school breakfast programs in Nova Scotia, providing an opportunities to nourish students in a social setting and improve health and education outcomes.  We will bring the Nourish Your Roots healthy fundraiser to more than 100 schools in 2017 and are developing a province-wide Edible School Garden program.

With your support, Team Nourish aims to raise $12,500 in May 2018 to help feed kids in Nova Scotia schools.  Because we know that good food = good thinking & good energy. Join us to make a difference!

Whether you are running or walking on Blue Nose Marathon weekend, or donating to support a participant, you can help Team Nourish fuel Nova Scotia kids at school!
