Help Heather raise money

For participating in 2021 Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon

My Story…

I’m so excited to be walking the marathon in support of Scientists in School – a science education charity that gets kids across Canada excited about science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) each year! Do you remember how much fun it was making backyard bug discoveries or seeing your first paper plane take flight? Let’s make sure all children and youth get the same opportunity. After such a fractured school year, your support will allow kids to experience hands-on science and even consider a future career as a scientist!


Scientists in School engages more youth than any Canadian science education charity, museum or science centre. Last year, we reached our 10 millionth scientist! But more work still needs to be done. Your donation will help us to subsidize our workshop costs so that they remain affordable for schools and will provide free workshops to youth in low-income communities. Donate now to help us raise the next generation of frontline health workers, researchers, technologists and scientists – just a few of the STEM workers that are essential in critical times like what we are facing today!
