Your Event, Your Ideas, Your Impact!

You are just a few clicks away from changing someone's life! When you organize or join a fundraising event, you are helping to raise funds in support of critical services for local families who are facing cancer. Each year more than 8,000 people in our community will be diagnosed with cancer, but your support gives them help today and hope for the future.

How to Get Started On Your Fundraising Event:

1. Register Your Fundraiser by choosing one of the following options:

Create a fundraiser (that others can join) Select "Create a Fundraiser (that others can join)" if you are the event organizer, and will have people registering in your event. This works great if you are hosting an event like a neighbourhood walk, bike ride, or team challenge! As the event organizer, you will have an event page and personal donation page created for you automatically, and both can be personalized by you only. Anyone else who joins your event will only have a personal page to manage, but their names will appear under the main event page.
Join a fundraiser Select "Join a Fundraiser" if you wish to join an event that is already registered. A personal page will be created for you, which you can personalize to your liking. Your name will appear under the main event page and the funds you raise will go towards the event as a whole. Just search the event's name in the "event" search bar to sign up!
Create a fundraiser as an individual Select "Create a Fundraiser (as an individual)" if you do not wish to have others join your event. A single personal donation page will be automatically created for you. We encourage you to personalize this page by telling us more about your event and including pictures and videos!

2. Once you have chosen your event type and signed up, begin spreading the word about your fundraising event to your family, friends, and colleagues. To make it easier for you, we've created template emails for you to use, edit, and send through your participant centre.

3. Start fundraising - your supporters can donate directly to your page, or you can collect funds using the pledge form linked in the menu tab at the top of this page.
