Why support The Princess Margaret?
With cancer stubbornly remaining the number one cause of death globally, and cases expected to double in the next 20 years, our top priority must be to accelerate cancer research and care.
As one of the world's top 5 cancer research centres, and Canada’s largest hospital devoted exclusively to cancer research and care, Princess Margaret Cancer Centre is pushing the boundaries of knowledge and making real progress against the disease. With the backing of a passionate community of supporters, we're transforming the cancer experience and outcomes for patients across around the world by detecting cancer at the earliest possible stage, and developing increasingly targeted therapies to treat cancers with less toxicity and greater efficiency.

What can I do during my event?
You are welcome to host however you choose, provided you follow a few simple guidelines:
· No profanity, sexually explicit or bigoted language or visuals
· No playing while intoxicated
· No illegal drugs or paraphernalia
Can I do my fundraiser outside of the community fundraising period?
Yes! We’ve dedicated the fundraising season to rally the Quest community and support them as much as we can during their campaigns, but you are free to fundraise whenever you wish. We have fundraisers who like to fundraise at specific times during the year to honor a milestone, the memory of a loved one, or for specific days such as World Cancer Day.
Are there any restrictions on games I can play?
We don’t have any specific restrictions on games we allow fundraisers to play on stream while they fundraise. We ask that the fundraiser use their best judgement when picking games for their fundraiser as they are representing Quest and the larger Quest community.
