FAQ about Fight For Gold

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Fight For Gold? 

Fight For Gold is our way to motivate individuals to take on your own personal athletic challenge and raise money for childhood cancer.  It’s any event, workout, or exercise challenge that you do anytime, anywhere!  Every month, we choose a different child affected by cancer as an inspiration.  Choose your activity, register, raise funds, and make friends and family aware that you #FightForGold!

1. Choose any workout, exercise, or an upcoming race (anything to get you motivated) and raise funds for pediatric cancer as you exercise!

2. Create a fundraising page to get friends and family to sponsor you.

3. Be inspired by the Fight for Gold inspiration!  Every month, we will post an inspiration… a child who has battled or is currently battling cancer.

4. Post to social media #fightforgold.

5. Be proud that you are “getting active” in the fight against childhood cancer!

I want to sign up to be part of the challenge, but I don’t exercise on a regular basis.  Is there something else I can do?

Now is your chance!!  Fight For Gold is all about getting active. Choose any activity. The important thing is to do something.  Go for a walk.  Do a group workout at your gym.  Go for a bike ride.  Dedicate your normal workout to Fight For Gold.  The important thing is that you are doing something and sharing with others why you are dedicating it to children with cancer.  Make others aware and encourage them to join in the fight!

I am training for a marathon.  Can I dedicate my run to Fight For Gold?

Of course!  That’s what its all about!  Choose your own personal athletic challenge…. run, your triathlon, your bike ride, create a personal fundraising page. and dedicate it to Fight For Gold!

I want to participate, but I want to honor a child in my family/community with the workout.  Is that okay?

Please do!!  43 children are diagnosed in the United States every day and 7 children lose their battle every day.  We tell one story every month, but there are so many more to be told.  Please, honor the child(ren) in your life with the Fight For Gold!  You can also send us the name and story of the child you are honoring and we will honor them on “Our Inspiration” page.

Do I have to register to participate in the Fight For Gold?

It is strongly encouraged that you register for the challenge.  When you register, you will receive a link that you can share with your supporters that will direct them to your own personal donation page.  You will be able to easily share your link and keep track of your progress.

Do I have to fundraiser every month?  

Fundraising is not required in order to participate in #fightforgold but recommended. You can choose the months you would like to advertise your link for fundraising.  We are hoping to encourage individuals to raise funds for our mission to support newly diagnosed families of childhood cancer and fund pediatric cancer research.  If you choose not to fundraise, please remember to share your reasons to Fight For Gold with your friends and family so we can continue to motivate individuals to “get active” in the fight against childhood cancer!  Encourage everyone around you to join the fight!
