Getting Started with Fundraising
Great Cycle Challenge Canada has one goal...to end childhood cancer!
Check out our fundraising tips below or use the links above to ensure you reach your fundraising goal to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.
Follow these steps to ensure your challenge will make an impact to change the lives of kids living with cancer.
Set a Fundraising Goal
Make sure you set a fundraising goal on your profile page. Your friends will be more likely to sponsor you if they know you have a personal goal...and they'll help you achieve it.
The higher your fundraising goal, the more support you'll receive from your friends, family and workmates.
And if you raise $500, you'll receive a FREE 2020 Great Cycle Challenge jersey!
