When you fundraise for the CTC-CK, you help us directly support therapy and services that our local children and youth need. That's why we encourage everyone to set a fundraising goal of $100 or even $1,000 if you can! Whatever number comes to mind is a good place to start—and every dollar counts.

Send the link from your personal fundraising page to your friends, family, neighbours and co-workers to raise money online for you and your team. All donations over $20 will receive a charitable tax receipt (email directly).

Awards will be given to the top three individual fundraisers!
