​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The IRCM Challenge is a fundraising activity that supports health research at the IRCM.

The Foundation encourages all runners or walkers registered for the IRCM Challenge to collect a maximum of donations. By participating in this initiative, you are taking part in the advancement of health research and thus contributing to the well-being of the community!

How does the fundraising works?

As soon as your registration is completed, a profile is automatically created for you on the IRCM Challenge website. You can personalise your profile yourself, by adding a photo, modifying the presentation text and adjusting your fundraising objective.  A thermometer displays your fundraising progress on your profile.

Participants can invite their friends, family and colleagues to visit their participant profile and make a donation by clicking on the donation button. Each donation made on behalf of the participant will automatically raise their fundraising thermometer.

To encourage you in your fundraising efforts, payment of your registration fee is included in your thermometer display.

Tax receipts will be issued for all donations of $20 or more.

Team fundraising

When a team registers for the IRCM Challenge, a profile is automatically created for it on the event's platform. The names of its members will be displayed there. Like the individual profile, the team profile can be personalised by adding a logo or photo, modifying the presentation text and adjusting the fundraising objective.

By inviting people in their network to support their team's fundraising goal, teammates will be able to receive donations on their behalf or on behalf of their group.

On each team's profile, a thermometer will display the fundraising progress totalling donations made to its members and to the team itself.
