Help John raise money

For participating in Scotiabank Calgary Marathon 2021

My Story…

I'm registered to run 10k in the Scotiabank Calgary Marathon in September.

I'm running as a member of Team Trellis to raise funds and awareness for Trellis programs in Calgary which aim to unlock human potential across generations.  Funds raised this year will support the Sustainable Families Program -  a housing first Trellis program that provides intensive support for families facing homelessness.

I have volunteered with Trellis and its predecessor, Boys & Girls Clubs of Calgary, for more than 30 years.  This organization does great work in our community. 

I encourage you to consider making a donation to support this old  runner (me) -  but more importantly, to support Trellis.


Thank you for visiting our page! We need your help to make an impact this year!

We work to end youth and family homelessness and create spaces for belonging and exploration in our community. We provide education and employment connections and ensure a safe home environment for youth and children whether that be through foster care, group care or in their own home. And we support deeper connections by meeting people where they are, across all cultures, languages and diversity spectrums. Trellis is committed to empowering individuals and communities with the support they need to grow beyond life’s challenges and reach their dreams. 

We invite your donations to the Scotiabank Calgary Marathon in support of Trellis. Your contribution will restore hope and possibility to those who would otherwise be without. To learn more about our Sustainable Families program, and how your efforts will make a difference, visit the Trellis website here.

Thank you!
