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.

Then, from May 27 to 31, 2024 , join us and wake up at sunrise every morning and share a photo or video of your Sunrise Moment to social media with #CAMHSunriseChallenge. Your Sunrise Moment can be the sunrise from that morning, or anything that shows your followers you completed the challenge that day like a cup of coffee, alarm clock or yoga mat. Get creative!

Your Next Steps


Gather support from friends, family and co-workers. Our fundraising resources will help you reach your goal.


Rise with the sun from May 27 to 31, 2024 and keep fundraising! Post your daily Sunrise Moment with #CAMHSunriseChallenge to encourage donations.
