Remember, in-order to enjoy the in-person race activities or to receive a race kit for your virtual race you must fundraise a minimum of $150 for adults and $50 for children/youth, (or an average of $150 per person amongst team members).

To help you meet your goals here are some easy tips.


Login to your Fundraising Dashboard

You'll find the tools you need to encourage your network to support you, send thank - you emails and track your progress.


Personalize your Fundraising Page

Upload your photo. Add why this event matters to you. Share with your network via email & social media.


Lead by example and Self-Donate

Kickstart your fundraising with a self-donation through your Fundraising Dashboard. When your friends, family and coworkers see your commitment, they'll be inspired to donate too!

The Family Navigation Project at Sunnybrook is funded by donors. You’re making a life-changing difference to youth affected by mental illness and addiction. Thank you!

Top tips to make fundraising a breeze!

Youth mental health is a cause that touches everyone in our community. Send emails and reach out to your network. You'll find people will be happy to contribute what they can.

Choose from the pre-written email templates on your Fundraising Dashboard, customize them, select the email address you would like to contact and you`re set!

TIP: Put a note in your email signature with a link to your personal fundraising page.

Remind friends who haven’t responded yet — your email probably got lost in the shuffle. Give them another chance to say yes in making a difference.

TIP: Ask two trusted supporters to forward your fundraising email or page with their friends and family.

Challenge yourself to go the distance and you may qualify for prizes and incentives.
