WAYS TO SWEAT
There are many ways you can sweat for SickKids! Run, ride, stretch or score. And if you’re feeling social — or competitive— make it a tournament!
Pedal to Cure JM Cycle Challenge
Pedal to Cure JM began in 2020, when Clara and her dad chose to do something extraordinary to support Rheumatology Research at SickKids. This year’s cycle took them on a journey from Vancouver to San Francisco, pedaling 1900km along the way!
Need some inspiration? Here’s how some of our fundraisers are supporting SickKids.
An Individual Fundraiser allows you to solicit donations to help reach your fundraising goal.
A Group Fundraiser allows others to join the event and fundraise to reach your group fundraising goal.
No, and we are grateful for all funds raised by the community!
Funds raised go towards the areas of greatest need—and greatest promise—at the hospital. That includes building a new, state-of-the-art SickKids, supporting groundbreaking research, and forging partnerships to improve care for more children—here and around the world.
As much as we’d love to come to every event, we can’t guarantee a SickKids representative will always be there. But even when we can’t make it, we will still provide tools and supportive materials to help you deliver impact to your participants.
While we can’t provide funding to run the event, we can help you find ways to offset event expenses and fundraise.
Once you have registered your fundraiser, you may access our In Support of SickKids logo & brand guidelines in your Fundraising Hub. The In Support of SickKids logo may be used on promotional materials for your event, but before printing or distributing, please send to your SickKids representative for a quick review. If you’re hosting a corporate event, your SickKids representative will share logo usage options with you.
While we can’t approach corporations or people on your behalf, we can give you tools and resources—including sample sponsorship packages—to make the ask yourself. This can be found in your Fundraising Hub once you’ve registered your fundraiser.
Gaming and lotteries—including bingo, 50/50 draws, gambling, raffles and games of chance—often require licenses. (For more information, visit www.agco.on.ca.) We recommend you hold a promotional draw instead. You can run do so without a license, but you must offer the tickets for a suggested minimum donation instead of a fixed amount. Please note that SickKids Foundation will not obtain licenses on your behalf.
Please send them, along with the accompanying donor details and your event name, to:
