About the Challenge
Great Cycle Challenge started in 2016, and after just 5 years, the event has grown to become one of the biggest cycling events across Canada.
People of all ages, abilities and from every province across the country set themselves a personal riding goal and challenge themselves to pedal throughout August to fight kids’ cancer.
In 5 years, our community of riders from all 13 provinces and territories have ridden a total of 12,580,838 kilometres, and together we raised $21,612,147 in support of research to develop treatments and find a cure for childhood cancer.
Why? Because cancer is the largest killer of children from disease in Canada. Over 1,400 Canadian children are diagnosed with cancer every year.
We're riding to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve, and we believe that any one individual can make their personal impact to fight cancer and save little lives.
So we’re calling on all Canadians to get on their bikes and join our movement to kick cancer’s butt!
Great Cycle Challenge is a national SickKids Foundation fundraising initiative held throughout August.
Our vision is a world without cancer where all kids are living life, not fighting for it.
