Great Spin

Pedal to change everything

Push your limits in a unique and inspiring spinning experience to help the Canadian Cancer Society fund cutting-edge research on childhood cancers.

Together or as a team, decide on a challenge that’s right for you (1 hour for beginners or 3 hours for spinning whizzes) or find out about challenges that are exclusive to your area!

Virtual event - 2020 edition

This year, given the COVID-19 pandemic and to ensure the safety of people with cancer and that of our participants, supporters, volunteers, and employees, we decided not to hold the 2020 edition of our events.

However, to give participants the chance to spin for the cause, the Canadian Cancer Society has partnered with Spin For Life, a third party event benefitting the CCS. This event will be held virtually on November 21 and participation is free for Great Spin participants.

The greater our numbers, the more we can change lives

Signing up on your own is good, but signing up with others is even better! Why not ask your colleagues to join you? There’s nothing like a sports challenge to foster the team spirit! Wear your employer’s colours in a way that stands out to show your company’s social commitment.


The more funds you raise, the better it is! All donations, big and small, make a huge difference in the lives of those with cancer and their loved ones.

A sum of $100 is desired for the first hour of spinning and $75 for each additional hour. The money can be collected through fundraising or given as a personal donation. An official tax receipt will be issued for all donations of $10 or more.
