This year, schools can celebrate their event on Wednesday, September 29th safely, in the classroom, or they can take part in a classroom/individual “Try Like Terry” challenge.

Terry showed us all that anything is possible if you try. He reminded us all that we can make a difference in the world and help the lives of so many. Whether it’s a Challenge you try on your own, a classroom to classroom Challenge, or a Challenge for the whole school, it all supports cancer research.

To set up a fundraising page, follow the instructions below.

1. Set up Your Student or Classroom/team page

Create your own student/classroom page with fun pictures or inspirational messages, or use the ones we provide. Follow the prompts to share your link with your friends, families, and school community. #TryLikeTerry

  • Set a fundraising goal (just like Terry)

  • Sends emails to friends/loved ones asking them to sponsor you

  • Track your progress

  • Sports teams and classrooms can challenge each other

  • Have Fun!

2. Download a Pledge Sheet

Terry Fox was all about effort. You can put more effort into your fundraising by downloading a school pledge sheet and ask friends family and neighbours to sponsor you. Remember – pledge sheets also work great when used together with our online fundraising!
