Get ready to take over the streets of downtown Toronto at the Scotiabank Rat Race for United Way! Happening on Thursday, June 14, 2012, this five-kilometre fun run is a popular fundraising event for United Way Toronto.

Of the pledges you gather, 100% of the funds will directly go to United Way Toronto, helping support a wide network of health and social service agencies serving our community. We hope to see you there!
Registration is now SOLD OUT. Thank you for your interest in the Scotiabank Rat Race for United Way. Because there are limited spots available, and the event is now completely sold out, we cannot accept any registration requests.
Going from Pending to Registered Status
When you start fundraising, you'll see your status as being "Pending" on your personal fundraising page. "Pending" status means that you have registered online but you have not raised the minimum of $75 in pledges. Pending refers to online fundraising only (donations made by credit card); you may have raised over $75 in cash or cheques, but your status will still say "Pending." In order for your status to change from "Pending" to "Registered," you must raise the minimum $75 online using Visa, MasterCard or American Express by June 11, 2012. To learn more, visit the Frequently Asked Questions page.
The 2012 Scotiabank Rat Race route will only be open from 8 to 9 pm on Thursday, June 14, 2012. A rolling clear will occur as runners and walkers proceed through the five-kilometre route. Participants moving slower than this pace will be asked by police to move onto the sidewalk and proceed to the finish line obeying regular pedestrian road rules.
