Why is registration free instead of $25 like last year?

A: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, large events have been suspended to encourage social distancing to help stop the spread of the virus. With no physical event requiring rentals, dinner, auction, etc., our overhead costs for running the event are very low.

We want to encourage all participants to show their support by fundraising to reach their goal of $250 per individual or $1000 per team, or making a donation they feel is appropriate. 

Q: Do I have to book and pay for my own tee time?

A: Yes. As you are able to play any golf course of your choice, you are required to book and pay for your own tee time, along with any rentals you require.

A: Yes. Sign into Canada Helps with the login information you signed up with. Navigate to Fundraising Pages and you are able to view and/or edit your page.  You can update your messaging, add photos or videos and access tips and tools to aid you in your fundraising efforts.
