Hold your own event

Through our Independent Fundraising Events program, you can organize an event that is fun and meaningful to you while raising important funds for the Canadian Cancer Society.

By holding an event independent of our Society-led initiatives, you can become a proud supporter. Every contribution, no matter the size, makes a difference in the fight against cancer.

Funds raised through your event enable the Canadian Cancer Society to continue its efforts to:

  • fund excellent research to outsmart cancer
  • provide information and deliver programs and services to prevent cancer and to support people living with cancer, their families and caregivers
  • advocate on behalf of Canadians on important health and cancer issues

If you'd like to make an impact in your community, we can help. Register your event and start fundraising today.
