FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do I register?

You can register via the interwebz by clicking the CREATE A CHALLENGE tab at the top of the page and follow the steps to create an account.
You can also give us a call and one of our Fearless Coaches would be happy to set you up!

How do I pick a target donation amount?

You, my friend, are the boss. Think about when you would like to complete your challenge, and then choose an amount that you think you can raise in that time frame.
We think $250 is a great place to start.(Seriously, it's soooo easy to reach that AND we support you the entire way!) The clincher is that once you hit $250, you are eligible for many of our special offers that allow you to complete your challenge more easily. Check them out here.
Once you've decided an amount, push your boundaries a bit! Did you originally think you could raise $250? Try setting your goal for $300. Isn't it worth a lot to your friends and family to see you face your fear?!?! PLUS, all the money you raise supports the Canadian Cancer Society and funds Canada's most promising cancer research and vital support services for cancer patients and their families.We can't think of a better reason to push yourself further than you thought possible.

How do I raise money?

Raising money for an awesome cause is easier than you may think. Once you register, you will get access to your own web page and your Participant Centre. We've stocked your Participant Centre with fundraising tips and tricks that are so easy, your brain might just explode at the simplicity. We have also included suggested email messages to use when you ask for support and messaging for all of your social media sites. No thinking involved!
Do you think apps are the best life hack? We have those to help you fundraise, too.
Are you old school and love picking up the phone? Our Fearless Coaches are here to support you so give them a ring.

What happens with the money I raise?

Seriously important stuff. Money raised goes to the Canadian Cancer Society to help:

How much time do I have to complete my challenge?

The Fearless Challenge is all about putting you in the driver's seat,so it's up to you! We recommend setting a challenge completion date of 4-6 weeks after you register. It is important to set a date though because a deadline will motivate your friends and family to support you.

What do I do once my target donation amount is reached?

Look for an email from us confirming you've reached your goal. Then, it's up to you to fulfill your challenge and upload it to the site. Follow the steps under the ‘My Challenge Video’ tab on your Create a Challenge page.

What if I don't reach my target donation amount?

Well first of all, you will! If at any point you feel stuck, watch out for emails from us that will help you along your way and remember that our Fearless Coaches’ are here to make sure you succeed. Just pick up the phone or shoot us an email and one of those lovely folks is here for you.
Ok,but let's just say your computer broke, your phone broke, and your leg broke. Yikes! Sorry for your luck!We get that stuff can come up, so don't fret. The donations you have raised have already gone to excellent use in support of the Canadian Cancer Society. If you still would like to complete your challenge, simply log into your Participant Centre and change your challenge completion date to give yourself a bit more breathing room.

How do I pick my fear?

No fear is too big or too small for the Fearless Challenge! It is totally up to you what fear you choose to face, but If you're not sure exactly what makes your heart race, use our Find Your Fear quiz to help you get started!

I'm under 18. Can I participate?

If you are between the ages of 13 and 17, you can still participate in the Fearless Challenge! All you need to do is chat with the 'rents and get their permission to register. Once you begin the online registration process, you will be emailed a parental waiver they must sign and return.
If you don't receive your waiver or have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to reach out.

But...Everything is more fun with my friends! Can I participate with my bestie?

Oh heck ya you can! During the registration process, you will be asked if you would like to register as a team or individual. You can either create a team or join an existing one.
The person who creates the team will automatically become the team captain. That person gets to name the team (but don't worry, you can always change it if you're not happy!) and he or she is the only team member to have access to your team web page. Every team member will still set an individual challenge and fundraise individually, but you can choose to complete your challenges together.

I signed up for a special offer. How do I get my e-coupon?

Through the magic of the computron. Once you meet any eligibility requirements for your offer, your e-coupon will be emailed within 2 weeks.
If you think you have met the requirements, it has been longer than 2 weeks and your coupon has yet to appear in your inbox, don't forget to check your junk mail. If it's still MIA, hit us up and we'll sort you right out.

What do I do once my target amount is reached?
