First up is the Dance to Conquer Cancer, hosted by the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation on Sunday, February 12. This groovy event is hosted by fitness fanatic Richard Simmons, disco queen Gloria Gaynor and So You Think You Can Dance Canada’s Blake McGrath so you know the dance party is for serious.
Curious about how you can help the fight against HIV/AIDS in Africa? Easy. Just think of an interesting dare for yourself, set a fundraising goal, create a profile online and get started. Some options include an individual dare, like performing a night of solo stand-up comedy (or figure skate, like Strombo did); a group dare like organizing five people to participate in a marathon; or dare to dine where you invite your friends over for a homemade dinner in return for a donation.
All funds raised will support the grassroots organizations turning the tide of the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Africa. For more information on the Dare Campaign, please visit the site. For Dare inspirations, check out this video (one guy rode an Ostrich around Toronto for a day!)
All funds raised will support the WWF’s conservation efforts. For more information on how you can adopt an animal, please visit https://wwfstore.donorportal.ca/c-11-wildlife-adoptions.aspx.
There are lots of resolutions about being healthier, but let’s all make a resolution to give back whenever we can this year.
