Maggie's Challenge

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month.
We’re launching a two-week fundraiser to help fund rare pediatric cancer research and provide financial assistance to local families. Join us for #MaggiesChallenge, two weeks of exciting fundraising challenges inspired by Maggie Schmidt. Email us at to get your school involved.

Here’s how it works:

1. Spread the word! Let your family and friends know that you’re participating in Maggie’s Challenge — invite them to join you or to sponsor your participation with a pledge or one-time donation. Every time you complete a challenge, be sure to share and post pictures on social media using the hashtag #MaggiesChallenge. You can also share your challenges on our @maggiesmission Facebook page, or tag us @maggiegivesback on Instragram.

2. Take the challenge! Keep track of your challenges as you go on your participation sheet and keep your sponsors up to date on your progress by updating your online profile.

3. Show your support! Wear your Maggie’s Mission bracelet throughout the challenge to show your support. On 9/27, wear something gold for rare childhood cancer awareness. Create an online fundraising profile on our website, find resources and templates for securing sponsors, and to follow along as your friends and family complete the challenges.

Thank you for your support!
