Fundraising Guidelines

Create a team!

Encourage your friends, families, and coworkers to join your team and raise funds for comparative oncology research. You can participate in the contests by raising the most money, or having the largest team. Start a competition with your friends or other dog groups. We are asking teams to raise of minimum of $100 per person.

Personal pages

Each participant gets their own personal fundraising page. Be sure to include pictures of your two legged and four legged friends who have been touched by cancer. Include stories about your friends and why this is important to you.
Sending emails from your personal fundraising page makes it easy to raise awareness and funds for your team.


Remember submit your forms if your employer matches charitable contributions. Ask your employer to help you raise money by having “dress down” days. Or ask them to become a sponsor of this event.

Remember Cancer. Touches. Everyone.

Almost everyone knows a person or animal that has been affected by cancer, so don’t be afraid to ask people to help you meet your fundraising goal.

Facebook, Twitter, etc.

Let your friends know you’re raising money for cancer research and ask them to donate $5.00. If 20 of your friends donate $5.00 you’ll reach your goal in no time!
