Hold your own event

You can join the fight against cancer by planning an event that is fun and meaningful to you while raising important funds for the Canadian Cancer Society.

You create the event. It can be anything, including a barbecue, bake sale, head shave, sporting event, chili supper, movie night, garage sale, aerobics marathon or anything else that you would have fun planning!

The funds you raise at your special event help the Canadian Cancer Society fight back against all cancers in Manitoba.
