Strike-Out Childhood Cancer Logo

Thank you for your interest in the 2020 Strike–Out Childhood Cancer charity fundraiser. Last year we were able to raise over $5,500! Your support will ensure that patients receive the best in cancer care. Due to COVID-19 we will not be able to hold the annual charity bowling event in support of the McMaster Children’s Hospital Foundation, instead going with a virtual Walk – A – Thon.

Put on your shoes and get stretching! We are excited to share that we will be hosting the 2020 Strike out childhood Cancer virtual Walk – A – Thon from September 15th to September 30th. The idea behind the event is to get outside and enjoy the last bit of nice weather 2020 has to offer while also spreading awareness and raising money for the cause!

How to Participate:

Get Outside! Go for a walk either alone or with family and friends. On the walk take a photo holding up the amount of fingers for the number of kilometers you walked and send the picture to by September 30th. All the submitted photos will be put together into a collage which will go up on the event website.

How to Donate:

From September 15th to September 30th you will be able to go to the event’s website to donate. The donation can be done using the “Donate” button on the registered participants fundraising page or directly on the home page using the “Sponsor a Participant” button. This will keep track of all the funds raised for that participant. Your family and friends will be able to donate towards you, which will increase your fundraiser total! The more funds raised, the greater the chance to claim one of the grand prizes!

All donations through the website will have a donation receipt issued for them.

How to Register:

You register on the event’s website. The registration is simple and is needed to compete for the fundraising prizes. Registering will allow you to have your own “fundraising page”. Once you log-in, you can access your participant center, which will have your fundraiser page’s URL, found under the heading “Personal Page URL”.


This year we will have two prizes that can be won; Toronto Maple Leafs Austin Mathews Jersey (Size XL) and an Apple Watch (Series 3). The two registered participants with the most funds raised by end of the month will each claim one of the grand prizes! So make sure you, your family, and your friends are donating towards the correct participant’s page!


Thank you for your generous support of McMaster Children’s Hospital!
