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.

Recent Highlights

Sam Sung auctions off last Apple business card

Sam Sung, a former Apple employee, generously auctioned off his last Apple business card, alongside an old uniform, to help grant wishes. Sam is a volunteer in the BC & Yukon Chapter of The Children’s Wish Foundation. He was introduced to Children’s Wish at the inaugural WISH gala in Vancouver, BC in March 2014. When the auction of his Apple items went live, it began generating a buzz on social media due to the irony of the items. After eliminating fake bids, the final bid was nearly $3,000 (CDN) and Sam was very pleased with the overall outcome. He continues to help support the magic of a wish!
