FAQ

Where does my money go?

The funds you raise for Workout to Conquer Cancer directly benefit the BC Cancer Foundation, the fundraising arm of BC Cancer, to support world-class cancer research and care.

What do I have to do?

Start by registering for Workout to Conquer Cancer. Then set up your fundraising page and start asking friends and families to support you in this challenge. We’ll be sending you tips throughout May to help see you all the way to May 31st!

Why is there a registration fee?

The $30 registration fee signifies your commitment to move every day for an entire month. It also offsets the costs of setting up this challenge, so that the money you raise can directly support life-saving cancer research.

Is there a fundraising minimum?

No, however we suggest setting your fundraising goal at $200. In our experience, this is a very achievable target for a month-long challenge. You can decide to make this higher or lower depending on how much you want to raise!

What if I need a day off?

We understand you might have a previously scheduled event (i.e. wedding / birthday) that might make it hard to stick to the challenge. So, we have created a Rest Day Pass. For a donation of $25, you can take a break, guilt-free!

How much do people need to donate to receive a tax receipt?

Donations over $10 will receive an official tax receipt within 10 business days.

Can I collect cash or cheque donations?

Yes. Donations forms are available here and in your Participant Centre. Please ensure cheques include your name and/or team name, and are made payable to the BC Cancer Foundation.

Cheques can be mailed or dropped off to:

Workout to Conquer Cancer
BC Cancer Foundation Special Events Office
2560 Heather Street
Vancouver, BC, V5Z0A6

Please do not put cash in the mail. Please drop cash off at our offices during business hours, Monday Friday between 8:30 A.M. and 4:30 P.M.
