What is the Sunrise ChallengeTM?

Now entering its 2nd year, the Sunrise Challenge invites Canadians to wake up with the sun for 5 days (May 30 to June 3) while raising vital funds for CAMH, Canada's leading mental health research hospital. By rising together and rallying our friends, family, and co-workers behind the cause, we can change the way the world sees and treats mental illness.

Mental health can't wait

We created the Sunrise Challenge because it's time. Time to invest in mental health like we do physical health. Time to end the silence, stigma, and shame that still surround mental illness today. Time to rise together and stop mental illness from destroying lives.
