Join the CRS ChallengeTM


The CRS ChallengeTM is a series of expeditions and fundraising campaigns to support cancer research. During these expeditions, adventure-sport buffs just like you get to conquer physical exploits that require courage, stamina and dedication. By signing up for a CRS ChallengeTM, you will participate in athletic challenges in far-flung locations around the world, in honour of your cancer hero.

The program includes a complete physical training plan to help participants achieve these physical endeavours. Experts in the field, including a trainer, a nutritionist, an expedition expert, a travel advisor, and a fundraising coordinator are available to support and advise participants on their physical and fundraising efforts.
