How to participate

The Challenge

Once you’ve registered, it’s time to start fundraising! Gather donations from friends, family, and co-workers by letting them know what supporting mental health means to you.

When the challenge begins, all you have to do is wake up with the sun every morning and share a photo of your Sunrise Moment to social media with #CAMHSunriseChallenge. Your Sunrise Moment can be of the sunrise from that morning, or anything that shows your followers you completed the challenge that day like a cup of coffee, alarm clock, yoga mat, etc. Get creative!

Your Next Steps


Gather support from friends, family, and co-workers to help reach your fundraising goal.


Rise with the sun for one week and keep fundraising! Post your daily Sunrise Moment with #CAMHSunriseChallenge to encourage people to donate.
