How Your Fundraising Helps

Great Cycle Challenge has one fight kids' cancer!

Why? Because 27 children across Canada are diagnosed with cancer every week.

All funds raised by SickKids Foundation go to support the work of The Hospital for Sick Children to develop treatments and find a cure for childhood cancers.

But we are not just taking the fight to one type of kids' cancer - our mission is to find a cure for all cancers to ensure healthier kids have brighter futures.

And we won't stop until all kids are free from cancer!

Our work has already contributed to major breakthroughs in cancer research to help kids all across Canada and we will continue to unlock the answers needed to develop and deliver better treatments to change the lives of kids living with cancer, just like Eliza, Maryam and Owen.

Your support through Great Cycle Challenge Canada will allow us to continue our work to fight kids' cancer and give these kids the brighter futures that they deserve.
