The Canadian Cancer Society Fearless Challenge: Confronting fears for funding cancer research.

The Canadian Cancer Society just launched their new fundraising campaign with the title ‘Fearless Challenge’. It is an invitation to all Canadians to confront their fears to help those living with cancer.
Money raised through the Fearless Challenge will fund cancer research and help patients and their families through support services.

Susan Drodge from The Canadian Cancer Society: “The society is committed to creating a world where no Canadian fears cancer, but we are not there yet. We know that more work needs to be done because a cancer diagnosis is still one of the scariest things a person can face.”

Participating in the Fearless Challenge is easy. Participants need to register a fear, upload a video and start fundraising.
From spiders to heights, to singing in public, no fear is too big or too small.


In total 20 high-profile Canadians are endorsing or participating in the Fearless Challenge, including Jason Priestley, Jesse Palmer, Natalie Brown, Italia Ricci, Robbie Amell and Jonathan Keltz.

New Zealand’s largest independent conservation organisation wanted nature back on the political agenda. The future…
