5th Annual Maraj-a-thon Friday November 28

9 am - 5 pm

The event:
Dr. Brian Maraj, professor and renowned squash maniac alongside a motley crew of colleagues and Steadward Centre racquet-wielding "Maraj-ers" is once again hosting an all-day squash marathon to support Free2BMe programs.

The Challenge
Take on Dr. Maraj and/or one of his squash-buckling faculty and TSC associates for a game or sponsor your favourite TSC consultant. All proceeds go to Free2BMe.


RAISE $25,000 for Free2BMe programs.

Last year, Dr. Maraj and his squash-buckling "Maraj-ers" raised well over $10K. This year, he is setting his goals for $25K. Because, when you think big, big things happen.
