Join the Toronto Vegetarian Team


April 28, 2017

Registration is open for the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon/Half Marathon and 5k (taking place October 22nd, 2017), and we’re accepting members to join our team!

You can sign up to walk or run the 5k, 1/2 marathon or full marathon to raise funds to support TVA.
Everyone on the team receives a special discounted charity registration rate, and the first ten people who sign up and pledge to raise $300 or more for TVA will get free registration! But that’s not all.
We’re really excited about some special new perks for team members this year including a private, exclusive virtual Q and A with Gene Baur of Farm Sanctuary, 10% off at a post run dinner at Cosmic Treats, and a lecture on vegetarian nutrition for athletes from registered vegan dietitian Pamela Fergusson.
All team members will also get product samples from Garden Life Foods, a voucher for a free yoga class from Ahimsa Yoga and tea samples from MNR Distributors.
Of course there will be great prizes for the top three fundraisers which this year will include gifts from Bloomer’s, Whole Foods, and the new local, vegan-owned personal training company Present Truth Fitness.
Our goal is to raise $12,000 for TVA to expand our outreach program, distribute more vegetarian starter kits, and bring in more high profile speakers to the Annual Veg Food Fest! Most importantly, the larger our team is and the bigger our presence at the race, the louder our message that vegetarians are indeed strong, athletic and healthy. We hope you’ll join us to make these dreams a reality.

How do I join?

To join the Toronto Vegetarian Team please contact Barbi Lazarus at or 416-544-9800 to request your special discount registration code, or let her know if you’d like to receive the free code in exchange for committing to raise $300 or more!
