The Challenge

Taking the Sunrise Challenge is a fun and simple way to support CAMH and the work we're doing to find new solutions to the most complex issues in mental health.

Rising Together

Participants in the Sunrise Challenge are asked to post a photo of their Sunrise Moment with #CAMHSunriseChallenge to social media every day of the challenge.

  • Your Sunrise Moment can be a picture of the sunrise, an alarm clock, your breakfast or anything else that shows people you completed the challenge that day by waking up early.
  • We encourage you to do something positive for your own well-being during your Sunrise Moment—whether that means taking time to meditate, move or read.
  • Participants that registered for Sunrise Challenge will receive emails with key dates to look forward to, fundraising tips and reminders about Sunrise Challenge week.
