**Update – May 6, 2020: The 56th Scotiabank Calgary Marathon race weekend, originally scheduled for Sunday May 31, is now a virtual event that will kick off an entire virtual running season for Calgarians.
In honour of former Calgary Public Library CEO Bill Ptacek, who passed away in 2019, the Calgary Public Library and Calgary Public Library Foundation have created The Bill Ptacek Fund for Innovation. The Fund, created in consultation with the Ptacek Family, will support the growth of bold new ideas and initiatives at the Library in memory of this imaginative and passionate leader.
Those who wish to remember Bill and celebrate his legacy can choose to walk, run and raise funds for The Bill Ptacek Fund for Innovation as part of the 2020 Scotiabank Calgary Marathon Charity Challenge, which is now a virtual event taking place between May 31 and September 27, 2020.
You can choose to run/walk your event as expected by training and completing it in full on a particular day, or you can get creative. For example, you could run 1km per day for 10 days to complete a 10km race.
