Scott McKay & The North Pole Marathon
Read more

On April 9th, 2014, Scott McKay will embark on the difficult and thrilling adventure of running in the North Pole Marathon to raise funds for The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada. This 42 kilometre marathon is one of toughest on the planet. McKay faces dangers of hypothermia, dehydration, drowning and even Polar Bear attacks! This “run on water” also faces dangerously low temperatures of -40 degrees Celsius, with wind chills as low as -100 degrees Celsius! To many this task may appear to be way too dangerous. For McKay however, he recognizes that these dangers and extreme challenges pale in comparison to what a child suffering with a life threatening illness experiences every day. McKay hopes to raise $1,000 for every km he runs which is a total of $42,000. One hundred per cent of the proceeds will go to Children’s Wish in order to help grant wishes!

If you would like to show your support and help Scott be one of only 292 people in the world to complete this marathon visit https://secure.e2rm.com/registrant/startup.aspx?eventid=126473 and make a donation to be part of a remarkable experience.

Flight in Search of Santa

Flight in Search of Santa

Want to meet Santa? In 2013, about 300 Wish children and a number of celebrities and Santa’s elves boarded a special flight bound for the North Pole. The 90-minute expedition – a joint venture by Air Transat and the Children’s Wish Foundation – turned into a voyage of discovery when Santa Claus made a surprise appearance to hand out presents to the wide-eyed children. Another great surprise: Air Transat gave Children’s Wish $309,605, money collected through the carrier's Small Change, Big Hearts program and other activities.
