JAIL-N-BAIL 2017

Jail-N-Bail is a lighthearted fundraising event that gives you the opportunity to put your colleagues in jail and put cancer behind bars for good!

Jailbirds are arrested by police officers or volunteer detectives at their workplace and taken to a “mock” jail, where they stand trial in front of a judge. After pleading their case and being found guilty, jailbirds must use their connections to raise bail for their release.

You can either turn yourself in or snitch on someone. The average stay at the Jail-N-Bail cell is about an hour but Jailbirds who have kick-started their fundraising will enjoy a shorter stay in the slammer and may even receive mercy from the judge.

Money raised at Jail-N-Bail helps the Canadian Cancer Society:

  • Fund life-saving cancer research - Research saves lives. That's because every new cancer treatment, diagnostic and surgical technique, and everything we know about prevention comes from research.
  • Stop cancer before it starts - our researchers are leading the fight to prevent cancer while we promote healthy lifestyles and advocate for policies that reduce your risk of developing cancer.
  • Ensure no one faces cancer alone - the Society offers a variety of compassionate services and support programs to help people living with cancer.
  • Empower Canadians - the Society provides comprehensive cancer information to help Canadians make informed choices about their health.
