Ready to Fundraise? In 2020 we encourage riders to reach out to their networks to make a donation and support the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. There is no fundraising minimum this year, but we encourage all riders to do what they can.
- Be sure mailed donations are postmarked by August 4, 2020 to be credited to your total fundraising amount before the event.
- Keep going with online fundraising through August 29, 2020.
- Any offline donation must be accompanied by a completed donation form.
Visit the Resources section to get started.
OUR ASK IS SIMPLE: DO WHAT YOU CAN.
The Ride is Canada’s largest athletic fundraising event, historically raising nearly $20 million a year for life-saving cancer research. Because of the pandemic, we expect to raise less than that this year—perhaps even as low as half last year’s total. Cancer still remains the number one cause of death in Canada – and this pandemic has only further highlighted the critical need to enable our team of world-class researchers to continue their work to Conquer Cancer In Our Lifetime. We can’t get there alone. We need your strength and commitment now more than ever.
- Make it personal. Add your story about why you’ve committed to helping the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre and inspire your donors to support you.
- After reaching out, if they haven’t already given funds online, follow up with a phone call to each person you’ve emailed and ask for a donation.
- Make it easy to follow up and say thank you: Get pre-written emails from your Personal Page.

Have you heard that Facebook now offers fundraising across Canada? Facebook Fundraisers are a great way to help you get your network in gear for your Ride.
Note: Facebook Fundraisers do not automatically link to your Ride fundraising account. Before you get started, here’s how to set up your Facebook Fundraiser so that it can be tracked and credited to your Ride fundraising.
How To Set Up Your Fundraiser
- Select Fundraisers on your Facebook navigation menu. This will be found on the left side of your browser for desktop devices and in the drop-down menu on Facebook mobile applications.
- From the Fundraisers screen, select the Raise Money button, you will be prompted to set-up your fundraiser. Please follow the next steps to ensure your fundraiser will be recognized by The Ride and properly credited to your Ride fundraising account.
- From the Who are you raising money for? menu, select Charity and search for The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.
- Upon selecting The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation, you will be prompted to enter a dollar amount and end date for your fundraiser.
- On the next menu screen, update the title of your fundraiser to include your first and last name, Ride participant ID number and Enbridge® Ride to Conquer Cancer®. This is the only way The Ride will be able to identify your fundraiser and your Ride information with your Facebook Fundraiser.
- Once you have completed this entry, continue to create your fundraiser on the next menu screen.
Keep In Mind:
- Funds raised through Facebook Fundraising will take up to 60 days to be credited to your Ride fundraising account.
- Funds raised through Facebook Fundraisers cannot be used for time-sensitive fundraising challenges.
