Where does my money go?
The funds you raise for Workout to Conquer Cancer directly benefit the BC Cancer Foundation, the fundraising partner of BC Cancer, to advance world-class cancer research and innovate care. Every dollar we raise stays right here in B.C. to save more lives in our community.
What do I have to do?
Start by registering for Workout to Conquer Cancer. Then set up your fundraising page and start asking your community to support you in this challenge. We are encouraging all participants to set a goal of 30 minutes of intentional movement every day for 31 days.
Why is there a registration fee?
100% of your registration fee covers challenge administration so that 100% of the funds you raise go directly to support BC Cancer patients.
Is there a fundraising minimum?
It depends! You have two options to choose from during registration:
Option 1. Pay the $30 registration fee with no minimum fundraising commitment.
Option 2. Waive your registration fee with your commitment to raise a minimum of $50 before June 1st.
Whatever option you choose, we encourage you to set your personal fundraising goal to $300. 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?
A rest day pass gives you a day off from the challenge while still contributing to your fundraising goal!
Simply select the $30 Rest Day Pass option when you make a donation to your own page (or ask someone else to purchase it for you!), and enjoy a day off while still making a difference.
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.
