Join Team Nourish in the Blue Nose
You can be part of Team Nourish - to walk or run, any distance - to help feed hungry kids at school.
You are able to add the Scotiabank Charity Challenge to your Blue Nose registration at no extra cost. Choose Nourish Nova Scotia as your charity, then create your fundraising account with links and tips to help raise money as part of Team Nourish.
