Immunodeficiency Canada has participated in the Scotiabank Charity Challenge since 2012 and has raised funds that have helped families living with PI. The Scotiabank Charity Challenge is a special event for the organization because it brings together staff, patients, families, and healthcare professionals for one day as they walk/run together to raise money.

2016 was an amazing year for Immunodeficiency Canada, raising over $11,000, exceeding fundraising goals with an amazing team. This year, building off of last year’s success, we hope to reach new heights and expand the team.
