Kick Cancer's Butt Day

Today (August 10) is Kick Cancer's Butt Day!

Our mission is to take action together to raise funds to support ALL kids fighting cancer to show them and their families that they are not alone in their fight to beat this terrible disease.

And our wonderful supporters, the Garron Family, will MATCH ALL DONATIONS received today, to the value of $1,300,000!

So, that means ANY online donation YOU receive today on Kick Cancer's Butt Day will be matched and added to your online fundraising page (within 24 hours). You can even sponsor yourself.

To learn more about the matching offer, click here.

Plus, the matched donations WILL count towards your personal fundraising tally to qualify for a FREE GCC jersey or Hero jersey!

Here are the best ways to take action today to kick cancer's butt:

1. Send an email template

Login to your dashboard to use our Kick Cancer's Butt Day pre-written email template and send to your friends, family and colleagues to tell them about the matched funding offer and ask for their support.

Simply select the template, add your friends and send...easy.

2. Post updates on Facebook

Post 2-3 updates on Facebook and / or Instagram throughout the day to tell your friends about Kick Cancer's Butt Day and update them on your progress. Remember, not all your contacts see all your posts, so you need to post 2-3 updates throughout the day to spread the word and encourage your friends to support your challenge.
