2010 we welcomed new athletic sponsor ASICS to the event and achieved major growth in the Scotiabank Chairty Challenge. The fundraising in the event doubled to over $500,000 and the number of charities doubled at the same time. We brought on Vancouver Canucks winger Mason Raymond as the Honourary Chair of the Scotiabank Charity Challenge. We produced a number of television spots featuring Mason to promote the fundraising aspect of the event.
