Help Charles raise money

For participating in 2021 Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon

My Story…

We are so proud of both Amistad Canada and Patronato Pro Ninos for pivoting and carrying on its work during the pandemic. Please consider supporting our 75 km (we turn 75 years old this year) walk for the Scotiabank Marathon 2021. Donations over $25 receive an immediate Canadian income tax receipt. All proceeds to the Patronato project of Amistad Canada.


For ten years, AMISTAD CANADA (AC) has been working to improve the lives of Mexicans-in-need through health and education Projects delivered in partnership with twelve Mexican NGOs. 

Projects include: mobile medical-dental service to remote communities; healthy school meals; underwriting medical care for sick and disabled children; supplemental classes in subjects such as literacy, computer skills, English and the arts; primary to post-secondary scholarships; a school for the Deaf; and a therapy centre for children with various disabilities.

AC participation in the Scotiabank Charity Challenge will provide Mexican-Canadians, and other runners who are attached to Mexico, an opportunity to support these initiatives.
