This coming June, MaKami students and staff will be participating in the 50th anniversary of the Calgary Scotiabank Marathon, one of North America’s largest marathons.
“We’re very excited to be a part of this year’s marathon,” says MaKami’s Managing Director Marija Pavkovi- Tovissi, who will herself be walking 10km in the race. Just like last year, MaKami students from both Edmonton and Calgary will be massaging participants in the race.
To volunteer for this field trip Edmonton students can contact Jo-Dee. In Calgary, students can speak with Tuyen.
A number of MaKami staff members will also be running in support of Queen Esther Education Foundation, a registered charity that helps newcomers and immigrants improve their lives in Canada. “This is the 50th anniversary of the race,” says Tovissi. Our goal is to get 50 runners to raise a total of $50,000.”
