Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Canadian Cancer Society’s Great Spin?
The Canadian Cancer Society’s Great Spin is a fundraising activity where you are invited to give it all you’ve got for the cause. The challenge: one hour of spinning, three if you can. The first edition of this event took place in 2009 in Pont-Rouge. Since then, more than a dozen events are held each year in Quebec.
How is the money I raise used for the fight against cancer?
Money raised helps the Canadian Cancer Society to fund promising research projects, provide information services and support services for people living with cancer and to advocate for public policies that reduce cancer risk and improve the quality of life of those living with the disease.

Tell your story
Explain why you decided to take part in the Canadian Cancer Society’s’ Great Spin event. The most effective fundraising pages are those which contain some personal information.
Do a bit more
Ask your boss (or your company) to get involved by making a donation, matching the donations collected by your team, or becoming a sponsor of the event.
If the majority of people do not make a donation, it is quite simply because no one asked them. Who should you ask for a donation? Why not everyone! Try some of the following suggested methods and see the results yourself!
